The permissions (user roles) are being altered temporarily.  The  
reasons are documented in the issue Ron has referenced.

Ron, it sounds like Moshe was suggesting that adding the reset  
parameter to user_access *might* be looked on favorably as a  
submitted patch to core.  having control over a caching behavior  
seems like a reasonable request with little downside. Given that its  
a really small patch, you might try filing it and see if it gets some  

I know you've been trying to come up with a resolution to this issue  
for a long time. I applaud your patience :).

Good luck on this.
