Just to be clear, I didn't exactly lose the admins. The data structure on
disk had the admins, but the proplist had an atom key 'admins' instead of a
binary key <<"admins">>. Similarly, there were atoms for 'names' and 'roles'
instead of binaries <<"names">> and <<"roles">>

So proplist:get_value(<<"admins">>, SecProp) wasn't finding

It just looks like the on-disk format has changed at some point.
