I wrote an module for managing pages and articles on a portal. For the 
categorization of the content I write use the permission system, so is easy 
to assign who can edit content in which category. I had this structure


I can see the "categories" in the permission admin page. But I cannot use them  
in my module as before. For example in my class I call.

$this->_perm->_datatree->get(DATATREE_FORMAT_FLAT, "news", true, -1, -1);

It used to retrieve the whole structure of my "news" categories. Now returns 
just the main one ("news"), without any subcategory. 

I tried to call 
$this->_perm->_datatree->get(DATATREE_FORMAT_FLAT, -1, true, -1, -1);
and it returns all horde permissions. So I guess that is a bug in retrieving a 
specific level of a tree.
