    ****************************************************************
    Error handling in EJSSecurityCollaborator is not sufficient to
    clean up the SecurityConfigResource object when
    some authorization errors occur. If there are many thousands
    of SECJ0053E errors it could result in a Out of Memory, OOM,
    error.
    Here is an example of the SECJ0053E:
    [8/15/12 15:57:51:499 EDT] 00000039 SecurityColla A
    SECJ0053E: Authorization failed for
    myhost.company.com:389/myuser2 while invoking
    (Home)quickSec50EAR.ear#messengerEJB.jar#messengerEJB
    create::2  is not granted any of the required roles:
    AuthUser
