There was a problem a while back in MOSS that caused users with proper rights to get access denied messages when attempting to edit or create items... something to do with the PermMask field needing the RenderXMLUsingPattern attribute to be set to true.
In a publishing site that was content db upgraded to 2010, I'm seeing the same issue, but PermMask is fine. The problem seems to be with the "Publishing Site with Workflow" site template, because if I create a new subsite in this collection and give
a content management user group any level of rights to it, including full control, the error persists in the new subsite. However, if I create a vanilla team site in the collection, there's no issue. The site collection has also been backed up
and restored in a test environment to isolate any farm- or server-related issues. Edit: both environments are also patched to August CU.
Anyone find a way around this without resorting to demolition?
In the logs, I'm seeing the following lines (user actually has 0x7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF):
PermissionMask check failed. asking for 0x00010000, have 0x00000000
PermissionMask check failed. asking for 0x4000000000000000, have 0xB008431061
