please note that the previous line will throw a
ConstraintViolationException since you
need to save the modified parent of the new node. but i guess that's
just a typo
in your code sample...

hmm... i tested the following on trunk:

i added the following lines at the beginning of the
SimpleAccessManager#isGranted(ItemId, int) method:

        try {
            String path = PathFormat.format(hierMgr.getPath(id), nsResolver);
            System.out.println("checking permission on " + path);
        } catch (RepositoryException re) {
        } catch (NameException ne) {
            // erm

when i run the follwoing code:

            Node foo = root.addNode("foo");
            foo.setProperty("bar", "blah blah");

i get the following console output:

checking permission on /
checking permission on /foo/bar
checking permission on /foo/jcr:primaryType

so everything seems to be working as expected. note that i
used the SimpleAccessManager's hierarchy manager for
resolving the paths.
