[Typo3] Question about FE groups and ldap_* extensions

Hello all,

I am using the LDAP_SERVER extension to sync our frontend users with  
our ldap directory. This is working great, however there is a feature/ 
bug that I am having trouble with.

Whenever a FE user logs in, the user's group membership is  
synchronized against the ldap field I specified, it works great.  
Only, during this process, it removes group entries for that user,  
that are not in the ldap! I tried setting the 'handleNotFound' to  
zero, and it didn't help.

This is unfortunate, because I have no control over our ldap, so I  
need to add FE users to groups that only exist in the Typo3 FE group  
table. But the next time that user authenticates, the typo3 groups  
all get deleted from the user record because they are not in ldap.

Does anyone know a way to fix this, while still keeping the group  
sync functionality?
