[Zope-CMF] Re: undo_form -> no content

I've recently encountered a similar problem, and I'm
not using Plone.  I'm in the process of migrating some
CMF sites to  Zope 2.7.7 and CMF 1.5.2, from Zope
2.7.2 and CMF-1.4.8.
With the newer software, I find that users who are
defined in the site's acl_users (even with the Manager
role) never see any transactions listed on the
undo_form, while users defined in the main acl_users
at the root of the zope instance do see transactions

I'm digging into it now and will report back if I make
any progress.  By the way, I also tried with Zope
2.8.0-final and 2.8.1b1, and got the same behaviour
with those (plus some other unrelated issues that made
me decide to back down to Zope 2.7.7 for now).
