I suggest checking out UseSQLForACLChecks (and the possible bugs it
can fix and cause) in RT_Config.pm and seeing if that helps. Unfortunately,
Constituencies may not be able to fully take advantage of it because
of the CF usage.  Your solution to add on a constituency dynamically
may be the right path to pursue.


> I have 2 constituencies.  Assume that there are 12 reports in 'constituency A', and 14 reports in 'constituency B'.  If I am logged in as a member of 'dutyteam constituency A', the 'new unlinked incident reports' section displays only reports from the correct constituency, but it seems like they are filtered AFTER the query is run (number of results/pages corresponds to the total number of reports in all constituencies).
> Not a big deal, but lets say that 'constituency A' has 6 reports, then 'constituency B' gets 14, and 'constituency A' gets 6 more.  In this situation, a user in 'dutyteam constituency A' only sees 6 reports on the home page (instead of 10), and has to go to the next page to see more.  However, page 2 is totally empty, and we find the other 6 reports on page 3 (as if all the reports were visible).
