A possible explnation:

You were doing stuff through the management interface before you tried
out joining your PTK site.

So, your problem is that HTTP basic authentication is telling Zope you
have a manager role while you've logged into the PTK with a cookie for
your member.

If you still get this behaviour when you've closed down ALL your
broswers and then started one up again, then it's probably a (very
serious) problem ;-)
