Symptoms

Using UCM 11.1.1.5 and SSXA in Jdeveloper 11.1.1.5.0, Files edited with one user in JDeveloper SSXA cannot be edited by another user with RW or RWD access.
The following error is seen:

Event generated by user 'xyz' at host 'abc.com:8331'. Content item 'SW-CONTENT-PH' was not successfully checked in. The currently logged-in user does not have sufficient privileges to assign the content item 'SW-CONTENT-PH' to the author abc. [ Details ]
An error has occurred. The stack trace below shows more information.

Steps To Reproduce:
User1 creates an element definition in JDev and closes out of JDev (they also have to login and "uncheckout" the item).
User2 logs in to JDev and opens the element definition.
User2 is able to make changes, but when attempting to Save the file, an error is thrown saying they cannot change the author.
Both users have RW access to the Security Group and the Account.
It makes no difference if the users login to the same or different instances of JDev.
(User2 can successfully checkout AND checkin the item by going through the UCM browser interface, so this is NOT a permission error!).
