You have to first figure out what object cannot be accessed and throws the 
authentication error. Usually the traceback in the console will give you this 

You can then inspect the checker of the object and see what permission is 
required to access the name. Then you make sure your member has been granted 
this permission either directly or by role.

You might also want to look at z3c.securitytool that can help you investigate 
security issues. However, I do not know the state of the tool.
