I'm afraid there's more to it than just a matter of configuration, cf

I've spent quite some time investigating the
solution, and the final word (from Olivier Grisel, cf the cps-users ml)
was that some code concerning roles and groups management was not yet
fully implemented, so the whole thing couldn't work without patching and
merging parts of CPSDirectories - which was a definitive no-no for us.

I don't know if this has been fixed in 3.3.6, but anyway, this part of
our project is supposed to be already working (and mostly does, except
for this security problem), and we can't afford to come back on it, as
it would delay delivery by at least one week - which is also not an
option. But thanks anyway...
