Hmmm. Don't think I've seen that (yet).
May I make a general plea? When people report experiences with
the PTK can they specify what _role_ was assumed by the user
at the time (i.e. member, contributor, reviewer, manager)?
I recently reported some discussable object weirdness
to the Tracker (http://www.zope.org/Products/PTK/Tracker/85/1 )
along the lines of
"Guests can see a "View thread" link but
authenticated users who have the
role member can't. The problem
doesn't apply to authenticated users who
have the roles contributor, reviewer or
This seems at odds with what is being described above, but
I may be out to lunch on this.
