F29 graphical desktop takes supplemental groups away

I have an account which has the following supplemental groups:

wheel cdrom dialout lock pulse-access

When I log in via the graphical login (xdm to whatever the default desktop manager is), then type the "groups" command into a terminal window, only my primary group and wheel appear; the other supplemental groups are missing. If I log into the same account on the same host using an ssh network login, I have all my supplemental groups.

Why is the graphical login taking away my other supplemental groups? I need them in the graphical environment for some of the apps I'm running.
