[Zope3-Users] Permissions for updateOrder() on OrderedContainer

Hi folks,

first of all: I'm working with Zope 3.3 and Python 2.4.

I created a hierarchical structure of OrderedContainers - some kind of a 
tree - and now want to sort it with Python. To move the containers from 
level to level in this tree with the ObjectMover is no problem, but 
updating the order of the contained elements inside the containers fails 
with a ForbiddenAttribute error.

For example:
A, B, C are containers with the names 'A', 'B' and 'C'.
B and C are contained by A.
 >>> A.updateOrder(['C', 'B'])
Traceback (most recent call last):
ForbiddenAttribute: ('updateOrder', <mypackage.cont.Cont object at 
(object at 0x022244B0 is OrderedContainer 'A')

configure.zcml defines each used interface with permission 
'ManageContent' and I'm logged in as 'Manager'. Accessing the method 
keys(), values(), etc. of the OrderedContainers is no problem. So what's 
the problem?

Every hint or comment one that would be great, because I'm trying and 
searching for hours yet.
