That seems sensible

Hmmm.. I don't think so ....

It looks that way. A good way to find out more is use the debugger and 
set a breakpoint on the last line of that trace. I like emacs for 
debugging, as it steps through syntax-highlighted code, but there are 
many alternative ways to do the same thing & opinions on the matter. ;-)

I suggested that as a temporary step to give a quick win and give you 
time to work out whats happening with 2.5.

(Actually it ought to have said 2.1.4 as thats the latest release so 
thats mildly worrying...)

We're still using 2.1.3 live  (2.1.4 is only necessary to fix a security 
hole if you allow new users to register with the "join" feature).
I haven't found any features in 2.5 compelling enough yet to outweigh 
the current problems of lack of documentation about LDAP / PlonePAS.
