<Sigh> Please read and understand the code more carefully.

There is no expected error. reindexObjectSecurity (which I introduced
more than 2 years ago because CMF was buggy without it) needs access to
all subobjects to reindex them. To do that it has to:

1. use an unrestricted searchResults, which was introduced with the name
   unrestrictedSearchResults 8 months ago in the types tool, and used in
   reindexObjectSecurity 3 weeks ago,

2. use an unrestricted equivalent of getObject. Before, getObject
   returned the object without security checks. Now, it does security
   checks. So we can't use it. And there's no unrestrictedGetObject.

That's why we have to do the equivalent using unrestrictedTraverse and

The None issue is a red herring, it's just that we *don't* want to fail
even if there are broken indexes. No we don't. We're reindexing what we
can find in the catalog. We don't want an exception.

I don't want the users to find that out when they change the local roles
somewhere. If you want to audit your catalog, just write a recursive
method that checks the objects. Don't do it on the fly and have it fail
on your users when ignoring broken object would have no actual impact on
the functionality of the code.

This is unrelated. Don't mix theses issues, I fixed a real bug that may
or may not have been visible because of DiscussionItem.
