When you protect the workflow variable "review_history" with
a permission, then, almost surely, DCWorkflow uses
for verification.
This does not respect proxy roles (probably a bug!).

Maybe, you can remove the guard on "review_history"?
If not, you can try to the corresponding WorkflowTool method
directly in an external method and provide there your own
security check.
