Oh, and remember that if you set the "Read File Contents" on a group's transition rights, it doesn't always make it stick. I had to go back and re-check the box within the workflow for a few states.
this is indeed a known problem that can happen in some Enterprise PDM 2011 SP5 and 2012 SP0 file vaults. It is reported under SPR 628382.
The issue was corrected in 2012 SP1, but there are hotfixes available for 2011 SP5 and 2012 SP0.
You can find the hotfix that corrects this issue in knowledge base solution S-058193.
If the hotfix does not correct the problem - please open a support ticket with technical support.

Thanks Tor, I'll check it out!
So, what would be the latest stable SP for EPDM 2011? We're at sp0 and I definitely want to move up, but I'd like to be sure I don't add more problems than I solve with an update.
