[Zope] You are not allowed to access ... in this context

I have a problem with a python script that has the Manager proxy
role. It creates a portal folder (Plone Folder) and then tries to
modify the newly created object. The ID is passed in the 'username'

  portal = context.portal_url.getPortalObject()
  profiles = portal.profiles
  profiles.invokeFactory(id=username, type_name='Folder')

This works just fine and as expected. Now I wouldd like to modify
the folder, and am trying to get an object:

  profile = getattr(profiles, username)

But this fails:

  Unauthorized: You are not allowed to access <username> in this

The script has the Manager proxy role, and I completely don't
understand why even without it, I should not be allowed to obtain
a reference to the folder.

I would appreciate any hints. Thanks,

martin;              (greetings from the heart of the sun.)
