 After much trouble of my own making, finally got this tested properly.
Search works as desired, so ACK with one caveat.  

I noticed when I try to add a user (under any 'user access'), clicking
'create user permission' gives me a 401, and subsequent attempts give me
a 401 followed by a 500.  I looked at the log
in /var/log/ovirt-wui/mongrel.log, but did not see anything go by, not
even an attempt at running the requested action.  Perhaps this is
related to the freeipa perm issues I saw being discussed in irc, but I
thought it should be mentioned.  This may not be at all related to this
patch, and if not, then definitely ACK.
