[jboss-user] [Security & JAAS/JBoss] - request.isUserInRole() returns NULL in Jboss 5, beta 4.

I'm experiencing a NPE in Jboss 5 when I try to check the request for a specific role.  Example code below:

			if  (request.isUserInRole("Employee"))
				System.out.println("not employee role");
				System.out.println("employee role");


This is through the container performing the authentication.  The same method works fine under Jboss 4.0.3SP1, but migrating to Jboss 5 gives this error.

I know my roles are available, as accessing role information through SecurityAssociation works fine.

Any help would be appreciated.  I'm unsure if this is a configuration error, or an error in Jboss 5.
