The reason for that change was to use the group interface in the bridge
to make the test case work. The way this was done is not ideal for error
cases. remove_group() can raise an exception if it is called before the
group is formed and that can indeed be the case on the finally-path.
I'll fix the patch to do this in the way described above.
