I'm trying to assign a portlet to a manager with an assignment of 
category content_type. This is with a vanilla plone-4.0b1-1. The only 
addition to a vanilla plone is, in the portlets.xml of the GS profile of 

<assignment name="news" category="content_type" key="Folder"
      manager="plone.rightcolumn" type="portlets.News" visible="True">
    <property name="count">5</property>

and then run the import step. However, after this (and adding a folder 
and a news item), I cannot see the portlet in any Folder object. 
Inspecting the portlet manager, I see that:

ipdb> manager = getUtility(IPortletManager, name=u"plone.rightcolumn")
ipdb> manager['content_type']['Folder']
<plone.app.portlets.storage.PortletAssignmentMapping object at 

I've got a PortletAssignmentMapping... If I delete it and add a 
PortletCategoryMapping instead, like:

ipdb> del manager['content_type']['Folder']
ipdb> manager['content_type']['Folder'] = PortletCategoryMapping()
ipdb> from plone.app.portlets.portlets.news import Assignment
ipdb> manager['content_type'][u'Folder']['news'] = Assignment()

The portlet shows properly in Folders. I'm I missing something, or is 
this a bug?
