I may have not explain very well the problem I have (which is similar
to the one described here :)
I'm using the AuthUser core function with the following settings in
farmconfig.php :
$AuthUser['admin'] = array('<encreyptedpass>','@admins');
$AuthUser['editor'] = array('<encryptedpass>','@editors');
$DefaultPasswords['read'] = 'id:*';
$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = array('@admins','@editors');
$DefaultPasswords['upload'] = array('@admins','@editors');
$DefaultPasswords['admin'] = '@admins';
$DefaultPasswords['attr'] = $DefaultPasswords['admin'];

I found that, after having logged, editor cannot read a Group.Page
when Group.Attributes contains passwdread=@_site_edit
