The cause, as it turns out, is another thread modifying the group at the
same time as my code tries to add the member to the group. This
modification is part of our in-house application based on Jackrabbit.

This is not directly related to Jackrabbit (at the moment), though IMHO
Jackrabbit should probably be more lenient here ...

Well, apparently the UserManager *is* in auto-save mode, since I did not
change it.

So it is out of my control whether the addMember calls save or not.

As said above, the problem is probably not the user-management code
itself but something else.

So, sorry for the noise.
