Agreed. I think permissions changes for existing principals are working

The issue we have is that Sling maintains a session pool - we'd need to
ditch the entire session pool every time a new group was created in
order to be sure everyone was working with the same set of permissions.
Having recently-logged-in users see a different world to everybody else
is causing a fair bit of confusion.

I can try raising the issue with Sling. It might be that the best
approach is to have the session pool listen for principal creation /
removal. I just wanted to be sure that there wasn't a less expensive
approach first.

Thanks again for the help,
