deletePermissions throws ConstraintViolationException

On Alfresco Community v3.2.0 (r2 2440) schema 3,300 I have written a patch that does the essentially executes the following code to loop through a set of nodes, remove their current permissions and apply new ones:


for (NodeRef node : nodes) {
           
            // Delete all the permissions on the node - line 97
            permissionService.deletePermissions(node);

            // Clear the accounts inherited permissions
            permissionService.setInheritParentPermissions(node, false);
            // Assign the new permissions to the node
            ….
}

However whenever it hits the deletePermissions line it throws this error:

I've found several similar issues on this forum with no solutions, this one is extremely close to what I'm getting - looping through a list of nodes to set permissions is throwing the same error: http://forums.alfresco.com/fr/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4401

This is not causing a problem on my local machines when I run the patch, only as soon as I deploy it on my test server (which is a replica of live at the moment). Also manually removing permissions one by one using Alfresco Explorer is working fine.

I know many of the similar issues have not received any solution but it would be great if one could be found for everyone on this one!

Thanks in advance.
