More details:

When a user not in admin or adminjr group accesses /admin-cgi :

[Mon Feb 21 10:53:45 2011] [error] [client ::1] Authorization of user 
blikkdisp to access /admin-cgi/admin.cgi/users/ failed, reason: user is 
not part of the 'require'ed group(s).

These groups are:

admin: lee mhm root
adminjr: adminjr1 adminjr2 adminjr3 lee mhm root

But adminjr1, of adminjr gruop, does have access to admin-cgi, even 
though that directory has Require group admin
