BTW, for the hacker inclined, an possibly useful way to debug this is
to edit SecurityManager.py, the __checkone() method.  Stick something
like this before the first try: line (untested):

    syslog('debug', 'key: %s, c[key]: %s, val: %s', key, c[key], c[key].value)

then tail logs/debug until you see the problem.  Maybe something
interesting will show up.
