After update to 10.6.4 there's an issue: any new users that I create in Server Prefs/WGM can't post to their blogs, comment, create wiki pages... They can't do anything! There's log from Wiki errors (when user DURAK tries to create new blog entry):

Any "old" user CAN create, modify, comment, etc. What can you recommend to fix this issue?

Hope for your help...
