[Zope] standard_error_message confusion

My standard error_message is ok.

I think my problem with LoginManager and Membership can be cut down to this:

If I take away all permissions from a dtml-document for Anonymous, he will
be correctly prompted for Login using *my* standard_error_message
("LoginRequired" is raised) as soon as he tries to access it. _But_, if I
take away the rights for Anonymous from a _folder_ under which a dtml
document acquires these security settings, he'll get the hard-coded Zope
error_message with the login field, instead of my (customized one). Whassup?

TIA Danny

Without looking closely at your system, it is hard to say. Perhaps your
standard_error_message is itself causing an error of some kind.
Therefore, you're getting the zope hard-coded error message.

Try commenting out most of your standard_error_message, so that there is
no possible way it could cause an error, then see if you see your
version or the Zope hardcoded version.
