    Permission inheritance

    I'm running a 6.0.3 site and I am having some trouble with permission inheritance. 

    The default permission for the user type Writer does not permit Publish. We do however have a Node where we want specific users with the Writer permissions to be able to create child nodes and publish these.

    In order to make that happen I have under 'Users > User Permissions > Some Specific User > Node in question' added Publish, and also selected to Replace child node permissions. That works fine for the actual Node and any existing child nodes, but as soon as a new child node is created the specific users who should have Publish permission are missing it for that new node.

    Have i misunderstood how it's supposed to work, or might this be a bug?

    Thanks Jan!

    I searched for similar reported issues but found none, so I've gone ahead and created one: U4-2161Permission inheritance is failing
