Symptoms

When trying to revoke roles from a User.
From the AdminUI, Admin tab -> Sites -> MYSITE -> Users -> search for my user -> Edit - > de-select some Roles -> Save.
In the UI a confirmation message is shown that the operation has been completed successfully the site.log shows this messages:

[2014-11-18 12:27:07,215] [INFO ] [[ACTIVE] ExecuteThread: '9' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [OpenMarket/Xcelerate/Admin/User/Post] [OpenMarket/Xcelerate/Actions/Security/AccessUserPublication] [com.fatwire.logging.cs] | [Nov 18, 2014 12:27:07 PM][Directory-W--15018][GroupMembership:removeGroupMember(IName,IName)][Attempt to remove member from group failed, member=cn=JohnDoe,cn=Users,dc=lc,dc=local not a member of group=cn=Some_Group,cn=WCSites,cn=Groups,dc=lc,dc=local; ignoring.]
...

If you view the user's roles again from Admin UI you can still see all the Roles the same as before removing them.
