Thanks for the advice. However the updating is not only regarding the
property "approved". I also get lots of other properties from a form
before this method. I guess I can specify all the properties but I dont
think that will make much of a difference and thats why I was a bit lazy

I solved the problem yesterday. It was objId that changed somewhere
between the from and this method. This is a big problem with Zope. When
one is trying to refer to an object that exist but dont have the
properties I specify I just get the error "Unauthorized" and not any
other error. It is very difficult to try to find the problem with such a
strange errormessage...
