custom User Registry groups

I am trying to implement a custom User Registry. I can succesfully added users in the Registry, but I have troubles adding groups in it. For the time being I am creating a sample User Registry with dummy users and groups (No syncing to my actual user database) as to test how this process works.

This is part of the log of alfresco startup. 3 users and 3 groups are suppsoed to have been added.

However once in the system I can see no trace of the groups having been created. Users are added normally.

This is my java class:

As you can see I create new users and groups and in code and I do no outside syncing, so the class is basically very simple. I think the problem lies in the properties or the name I set for the NodeDescription for the groups.

Any pointers ?

Thanks.
