Subject Re: Merge GERONIMO-2313 into 1.1.1??

Thanks for the bump.

Agony might have been more my state of mind than a good reflection of the discussion but I'll

summarize it here.

Note David Jencks comments below about how EJB security is broken in Geronimo.  We know it
work and for the life of me I'm not sure why in the voluminous number of tests executed to
Geronimo this simple test case is not included.  Nevertheless, it is a security issue and
given that 
  we are working through some legal questions over DTDs and XSDs as the release manager I
decided to 
let the change in due to the fact it is a security issue.
