[rt-users] Right could not be revoked

It's been reported once, but there is no solution as other developers
and I can not reproduce the problem. The only option I see is to
delete record(s) from ACL table. The only inconsistent data you can
leave there are invalid delegations, but it's possible to clean them
too. Delegations in the same table.

Anyway, it would be cool if you will dig a little bit to give us way
to reproduce the problem.
