SharePoint 2013 Client Object Model - Adding User to Group

I'm using the client object model to add a user to a SharePoint group.  It seems to add them, but the permissions (ability to log into the site) aren't effective for the user.  If I then manually add the user, there are then two instances of the user in the SharePoint group member list, and then the user can log on.  This is my code:

 Sub AddSPUser(ByVal uname As String, ByVal emailaddy As String)
        Dim creds As New Net.NetworkCredential("****", "****", "****")
        Dim siteurl As String = "http://****"
       
        Dim clientContext As New ClientContext(siteurl)
        clientContext.Credentials = creds

        Dim web As Web = clientContext.Web
        Dim user As User
        user = web.EnsureUser("****\" + uname)
        Dim klaMembersGroup As Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Group = web.SiteGroups.GetById(8)
        Dim userCollection = klaMembersGroup.Users
        
        userCollection.AddUser(user)

        clientContext.Load(user)
        clientContext.Load(klaMembersGroup)
        clientContext.ExecuteQuery()

    End Sub

Dear CCWest,

I would recommend you to have a look at the article below:
http://www.learningsharepoint.com/2010/07/27/programatically-create-user-groups-client-object-model-sharepoint-2010/
(it contains code for 2010 and internal links to different tasks required to be completed before adding your user, you have to follow a similar approach for 2013 as well)

http://sharepointquicksolutions.blogspot.in/2012/08/addingremoving-users-tofrom-group.html

The article is in C#, though it comes in handy in guiding about the steps to be taken to add an entry in the user collection.

Enjoy!!!
