Kapil, I'm close.   My goal is to make objects inaccessible if the user doesn't 
have the correct dynamic permission.   So for objects that the user can't see, 
they have no "view" permission.  For objects that they can see, the user gets a 
role called DYNAMIC with the "view" and "access contents information" 
permission.  Using your script, I see the following:

  roles context ['Member', 'Authenticated', 'DYNAMIC']
  access contents 1
  view 1

But if I add the following line to your script:

  print "title", context.Title()

Verbose Security reports the following:

  Access to 'Creator' denied ... Access requires one of the 
  following roles:  ['DYNAMIC', 'Manager', 'Owner', 'Reviewer'].  
  Your roles in this context are ['Authenticated', 'Member'].

What am I missing?  Is there some other object that is being accessed, or is 
there some other permission other than 'View' and 'Access Contents Information' 
that needs to be given?

Thanks very much for your help!
