Douglas,

You seem to be doing as expected, however a few points to note:

When you created the user did you give it managment permissions or is it
only a 'normal' user?

The new user doesn't get added to the access only superusers are put in
there (I think there has been some talk about having multiple su's tho).

The new user is put into the ZODB and accessed from there.

This is pure obfuscation, the password fields are set to a value that zope
recognises as you saying 'just change the properties associated with this
user, but leave the password alone'.

As above, the only thing I can think of is that you didn't give the new user
the correct permissions.

No secrets, we don't have secrets here ;)
