Subject Re: ACLs, GlobPattern and move

OK.  I now urgently need somebody to have a look at it. There must be
something wrong with my test, as the results is otherwise quite
Even without a davex client in the mix.

I uploaded a very simple Testservlet to
https://gist.github.com/1261791 which can be installed in the
jackrabbit-webapplication to make it easier to follow my experiments.
The basic idea is to restrict read access to a subnode  and a property
via rep:glob entries. The setup looks like that:

/test1              -> visible
/test1/second  -> visible
/test1/sub       -> hidden
/test1/hidden   -> hidden

To get there, install the servlet and call setup on it (performed as
admin): action=setup

Next is to verify that the setup works as expected (performed as
user1): action=dump
That should show the following output (only visible nodes are listed):

/test1 readable: OK
/test1/second readable: OK

Now do a move (admin): action=move&src=/test1&dest=/test2

Verify that the moved nodes subnodes visibility is correct (user1
session still open and used):

/test2 readable: nt:unstructured: OK
/test2/second readable: nt:unstructured: OK

Fine until now. Next is to try a new session of user1. Logout user1:

And login&dump again: action=dump

/test2 readable: nt:unstructured: OK
/test2/second readable: nt:unstructured: OK
/test2/hidden readable: secret: ERROR!
/test2/sub readable: nt:unstructured: ERROR!

Why is that? And why is it only happen after relogin?
