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
manager. "

This seems at odds with what is being described above, but
I may be out to lunch on this.
