With sharepoint designer workflows, if the user creating an item doesn't have permission to edit an item, for example, any workflow that is automatically run on the creation of the item will fail if it is meant to edit some property of that item. This can cause problems if you want the automated workflow to perform various tasks, and run automatically, but you don't want users to edit items once they've been created. Do the "grant item access" or "remove item access" operate under elevated priviledges by any chance, or does the user who created the item still have to have the right permissions on the item for those activities to work? It'd be extremely useful if they did run under elevated priviledges.
