[Glass] Cannot #reclaimAll ... fails with a SecurityError

Take a look at:
	((AllUsers userWithId: 'GcUser') objectNamed: #'UserGlobals') objectSecurityPolicy. 
Then take a look at:
	System myUserProfile groups.
Your code should work as DataCurator since that user is in the System group, which has write permission to #’UserGlobals’ for GcUser.

I suspect that UserXXX is not in the System group. With the privileges you have granted, your user can initiate GC operations, but not adjust GC parameters.
