Category Manager Not Saving Modified Permissions

Post by dbreise » Mon Apr 08, 2013 6:27 pm

In my Joomla 2.5 installation, when logged in as super user to administration interface, and editing a top level category, I change the drop down setting for the edit permission for a specific group from 'inherited' to 'allow' and click 'save'. When the page reloads, the drop down is back at 'inherited' and the calculated permission is 'Not Allowed'. Other changes to the category (published status, description text are successfully updated).

There is no parent category. The group has two levels of parents back to public. All permissions are inherited on the parents except for public which are all set to 'not set'. The permissions on the article component are all set to inherited.
Nothing in error.php
These 3 lines show up in jcontroller.log2.php (the category ID is 83):
2013-04-08T17:44:12+00:00 INFO controller Checking edit ID com_categories.edit.category.83: 1 Array ( [0] => 83 )
2013-04-08T17:44:12+00:00 INFO controller Holding edit ID com_categories.edit.category.83 Array ( [0] => 83 )
2013-04-08T17:44:13+00:00 INFO controller Checking edit ID com_categories.edit.category.83: 1 Array ( [0] => 83 )

Any ideas or even ways to debug this?

Thanks!

Have I truly stumped this forum? Or perhaps I've left out some critical piece of information in my post?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks!
