I talked with dain about this a little bit and his experience is that  
except for a couple of not-too-frequent and fixable situations  
(involving collections???) the jpa-based cmp2s are faster than the  
tranql ones in geronimo 1.x.  Dain doesn't look at this mailing list  
much any more so I suggest you ask about this on the openejb lists.

Can you post a stack trace?

I think I remember that in 2.x I have an empty, registered Subject so  
that there is always a "unauthenticated" user with no checked  
permissions, and that I added this so you wouldn't get into  
situations like this.  Can you show your security configuration in  
the openejb-jar.xml?  It might help to see if something can be  
configured as a default subject.
