The whole "group/list" thing seems to be a bit of a mess. I have found 
that basically every upgrade kills the groups I have created, regardless 
of method, and I have to recreate them.

So I keep a mail sent to said groups when they work as templates so that 
it is easy to recreate the groups after an upgrade.

Having done so they normally work fine until next upgrade. Check that 
your group does not have a bunch of empty "members" following the 
upgrade, that is sadly what I often encounter.

All the best,
