That should have worked...
But maybe, "etcUserFolder" is broken and does not check against the
emergency user (defined in "access").
I have a rude method for you:
Back up you "Data.fs".
Use "fsrecover" in "lib/python/ZODB" to analyse the latest
trunsactions in your "Data.fs" and cut of several transactions
(up to the deletion of you "acl_users"). You do this with
"ftruncate" (there is a HowTo on zope.org, search for "corrupt").
