Its still kinda silly to try to protect Zope resources with big fat
Apache hammer ;) It kinda "works" for Root (/) and only one account,
but you are lost if you want to have different users with fine
grained security and zope actually knowing them.

Dont work against zope. Work with it.

And if something does not work as expected, you need to post _all_
the gory details of your configuration and what you really did.

If you cant remember, start over with a clean fresh Data.fs
and write down all steps you took.
