Bug Description

This is a minor bug which only occurs in a very specific setup, but it is a bug all the same and should be fixed at some point.

To replicate: (using version 7.0-20130313-002537)
- Run server in debug mode and create a new DB
- Go to Users > Adminstrator and update the access rights to the following: Multi-Companies=True. Technical Features = True.
- Refresh and then go to Companies and create a new company, 'Company B'
- Go to Users and create a new user, 'User B' with the following access rights: company='Your Company'. Allowed Companies='Your Company', 'Company B'. Adminstration='Settings'. Multi Companies= True.
- Change User B 's password
- Sign in as User B.
- Go to Preferences in top right corner
- Change Company from 'Your Company' to 'Company B'.
- Click Save and watch the log. The following error is thrown:
'Access Denied', The requested operation cannot be completed due to security restrictions.
- No logo is loaded where it normally would be, on the left menu

From the stack trace it is clear the issue stems from loading the web_logo field:

After some investigation, it is clear the "Access Denied" is caused by trying to access the partner_id field of User. This fails as UserB's partner_id is linked to company "Your Company", while the user only has access to view "CompanyB".

To avoid this problem I have proposed a fix (see related branch above) which only retrieves the fields immeditely required to get logo_web and will now display the logo without error.
