	What kind of privileges have you set up both globally and by Queue for 
the role Requestor. Also, you may have some privileges for system groups 
or user-defined groups that overlap the requestor so that even if the 
actual user does not have a particular privilege as a requestor, they 
may have it as part of the other groups. Hope this helps.
