Subject Re: Losing rights while going throw a binding
Date Tue, 25 Jan 2011 08:00:27 GMT
sorry for the reminding, but what should I do? Thousands of Users do not 
have access to their resources in their home-folders. And I don't have 
an answer and not even an idea why this has happen.
When we started using Jackrabbit in October the bindings were fully 

We are using 2.1.1.
Is there a known bug?

Please help.
