Subject [jira] Created: (JSPWIKI-352) page ACLs seem to get mixed up in special cases

page ACLs seem to get mixed up in special cases

                 Key: JSPWIKI-352
             Project: JSPWiki
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Authentication&Authorization
    Affects Versions: 2.7.x
            Reporter: Florian Holeczek

As reported on the mailing list before, I had some weird issues with pages getting uneditable
as if by a ghost's hand.

I was able to reproduce this error finally like following:
Insert the page ACL "allow view all" to the page named "EditPageHelp" (and verify there's
no other ACL).

Seems as if editing an arbitrary page after this, the page ACLs of the page to be edited and
the EditPageHelp are getting mixed up somehow. The result is, that pages aren't editable at
all (although they should be), or that there's an error while saving the changes ("you're
not allowed to do that, better luck next time") and the page becomes uneditable from this
moment on.

I didn't track it down to the source code, but I think this will be quite easy now.

Also, I didn't test older releases, only the 2.7.x (current trunk).

Interesting to see that some pages only become uneditable only after trying to edit them,
while others are uneditable from the beginning on. Maybe the pattern can be checked while
debugging in order to get some hints for JSPWIKI-27.

Happy debugging!
