This is more complex than I thought. It seems like ACL is no longer calculated on the fly based on group membership - it looks like it's pre-calculated and stored in the session. I add the group, but the access level never changes. So I need to figure out how to force it to be re-calculated...but that isn't going to happen at 2:45AM.
