This sounds like a bug to me. I've had very similar problems to this
with Squishdot.

This thread might well be the same problem, if it was looking for roles
on the subobject, and the subobject is Acquisition.Explicit or not
Acquisition subclassing at all, it wouldn't find any roles there and
wouldn't get the ones on the object through acquisition, hence raising
the Authentication box that was causign problems in Squishdot.

Here's the other threads on the problem for a bit more context:

Does this all make any sense or have I lost the plot again?
