We had this same problem a couple of releases back (about 2 years) and changed our primary index from decimal(18,0) to decimal(15,0). As
far as I know the problem was fixed (we did some testing) but we never went back to decimal(18,0). If I remember correctly we received
erratic results with the larger numbers but the smaller numbers were OK. We found the problem because we were plugging the highest digit
with a value to group id generation.
You might try using a 15 digit decimal with leading 0's as an index value and see if it works as expected.
