Just a word to thank you for your reply. 
But incidently, wouldn't it be a good idea for Globals.InitializeClass() 
to throw an error
or a warning of some kind for hanging 'security.stuff()' declarations,
declarations which do not have a related ClassSecurityInfo object AT THE
CLASS LEVEL? To the unaware beginner (like myself) this creates
a very obscure bug: the declaration at the module level 'hiding' the missing
ClassSecurityInfo object (at the class level). I see some other discussions
on this list on this topic, so maybe this problem is already being addressed.
Anyway, I would never have found this alone by a long shot. Thanks.
Sorry for the cross-post.
