Do not use "manage_changePermissions".
This method is designed a action for the corresponding management
interface page. In order to use it, you must build the request
in the same way as the action submit would do it -- difficult
and very error prone.

Instead use "manage_permission".
It sets the roles/acquire-flag for a single permission (e.g. the "View"
permission).
You call it directly on the object for which you want to change
the permissions, e.g. the "dtml method".
