Workaround: Download the Group Key both public and private blocks to the individuals local machine and then import this keypair into the local user key ring. This key should have a passphrase given to it during the export process in order to secure the private portion of the key when not in the Symantec Encryption Management Server.
This issue is fixed in the following release:
