Hi Duncan,

The Creator() method looks into the acl_users folder of the portal to find
the user object of the user who created the object. If not found, it says
that Anonymous User has created the object.
I discovered that last week when renaming a portal object from 'dev' to
When I looked at an object's Owership-tab in the ZMI I could see that the
ownership was set to e.g. dev/acl_users when I wanted it to be www/acl_users

So I had to manually change all the ownerships ... (by making my users go to
http://myportal/Members/username/manage and change the ownership from the
tab) ...
