WTF? How is that missing from the code? Yes, add the filter as you 
stated in the SEC_getGroupDropdown call to SEC_getUserGroups. Well, I 
was looking for a reason that I would have to upgrade to the 1.7.0 
beta1. So when I do so I'll include that fix as well.

Thanks for checking my stuff. And for anyone else using at my patch 
(and only those using my patch), change line 1057 of lib-security.php to
         $usergroups = SEC_getUserGroups('grp_owner = 0');
