      Description

      The ACL wiki page (https://cwiki.apache.org/qpid/acl.html) indicates by at least two examples, that group declarations can contain sub-groups. However, Qpid 0.16 does not (seem to) allow this.

      For example, given the following ACL file (cut down from the example at https://cwiki.apache.org/qpid/acl.html#ACL-Examplefile%253A):

      # Some groups
      group user-consume martin@QPID ted@QPID
      group group2 kim@QPID user-consume rob@QPID
      

      Qpid 0.16 gives the following error:

      ACL format error: /home/paul/.qpidd/qpidd.acl:3: Line : 3, Username 'user-consume' must contain a realm

      It appears that the broker is requiring user-consume to be a qualified user name such as user-consume@QPID and not realizing that it is a group name instead.
