Im guessing that the cascade delete options for your particular database 
are not set correctly.

In JetspeedSecurity.properties:


try setting this to true for Hypersonic

For starters, override the Login and Logout modules in TR.p


you will need to track users as they login and logout, and also handle 
session timeouts. Although its tricky because if someone closes a
