Bug Description

If we design our method by permision, this method need login user. But permisson method don't chek group; check method permision if this user is "Superuser status"; not group.

Example of method:
@rpcmethod(name='rpc4django.secret', signature=['string'], permission='auth.add_group')
def secret():
    return "Successfully called a protected method"

proxy = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy("http://prova:prova@localhost:8443/xmlrpc") #rpc4django

prova user, need Superuser status user; not check by group.

user.has_perm(method.permission) always return True if authorization are successfully

I am not able to reproduce this issue. I have a theory though.

If this is related to issue #727879 which you filed, then you may see the problem you are getting. The decorator checks permissions before the method is called. However, in the example you gave in ticket #727879, you are logging the user in as part of the method body. In this case, the @rpcmethod decorator will check permissions and fail because the user hasn't been logged in since that happens during method execution.

I think that once you setup your authentication properly as I suggested in #727879 that it will resolve your issues. Let me know.
