I just did a quick test involving going through the property inspector for
a group and changing properties. I have confirmed that the following
properties will cause a group that is assigned the layerMode of "container"
to have an effective layerMode of  "static":

- opaque
- showBorder
- showname
- hscrollbar/vscrollbar
- dropShadow, innderShadow, outerGlow, innerGlow, and colorOverlay

In addition, the acceleratedRendering of the stack must be true or the
group will always have an effective layermode of "static".
