Refer to new group?

I thought I had read that the LC guys had fixed "it" to reliably refer the newly created group.  If this still doesn't work, another workaround is to set the name of the templateGroup before creating any group, so you have a guaranteed reference when the group is created.  I've used this option for years without issue.
