Symptoms

Adding a user to a group in OID after the group is granted view privileges to a group space is causing the user to see errors when viewing the Spaces Pages. They are seeing errors like "User 'xxxx' is not authorized" for announcements. Forums also show not found errors when they access the group space first time.

The following is seen in the logs:
