HI Michael,

The access control is what I was thinking of when I last replied (from 
my phone, so I couldn't see the settings).

Try turning the access control setting to deny everyone, add your user 
to the white list and try again. Then try setting it back to allow 
everyone and delete your user from the list. See if either of those 
help with the problem.

Ahh, I've also just noticed on the Policies tab (I'm using 11.04, so it 
might be slightly different), there's an "Operation Policy" setting, 
which has the values "Default behaviour" and "Authenticated" - mine is 
set to "Default", so check yours isn't set to "Authenticated".
