Moving Groups Bug

I've run into a number of issues in 8 with groups, especially datagrids.
1. The PB and groups do not coexist well, yet, and that includes when
editing a group, relayering a group, and editing a group.  My advice is do
not use the PB when working with a group.
2. LC recycles group properties, and sometimes assigns them when new groups
are created (depending on a couple of factors)

On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,

And God said, "This is good."
