I do not have a pure Zope 2.7.x installation (and
will not install one just to convince you :) )

Almost surely, because your example is flawed ;-)

When I remember right, you used a template to verify
the behaviour you expect Zope to have.

But a standard template tries to access its client
(in your setup the protected folder) to show its "title/id".
And this fails, when the client does not grant "Access contents information"
(in case "client" is a "Folder" as in your case).

I suggest, you try again with an "Image" object instead of
a template or remove all references to "here" and "container"
in your (Page) template.

And again: it is probably very instructive to look at the code
in "ZPublisher.BaseRequest.BaseRequest.traverse" ;-)
