[Zope3-Users] Groups, Principals and Permissions

I must be misunderstanding something with zope.app.authentication and
using the classes directly as contained in that package.
I have a PluggableAuthentication utility, registered, with GroupFolder
and PrincipalFolder authenticator plugins. I have GroupInformations for
groups in the group folder and InternalPrincipals for principals in
I have added principals to groups. All good, everything looks ok. But
the principals do not 'inherit' the permissions assigned to the group
(using PrincipalPermissionManager) they have been added to.
I can get the groups for the principal easy enough:
context = principal
pau = zapi.getUtility(IAuthentication)
members = pau['members']
principalid = pau.prefix + members.prefix + context.login
groups = groupfolder.getGroupsForPrincipal(principalid)
So it 'appears' to me that the security looks up the groups differently?
Or have I missed something?
Best regards, confused (as often is the case).
