Access was denied to page StartPage in EPiServer.PageBase


I am trying to open a popup page with a user that dont have access to startpage and I get the followin error message:

Exception Details: EPiServer.Core.AccessDeniedException: Access was denied to page 5.

[AccessDeniedException: Access was denied to page 5.]

My site is running on SP3 and since the solution has complex code regarding access to pages and setting access to pages programtically,
I dont want to upgrade to R2 so close to delivery. 
I've seen this problem in 2 different parts of my solutiong:
1. when trying to open a pop-up window with a use that dont have access to startpage
2. when trying to open a dialog window for mulitpage property in edit mode for a user that dont have access to startpage
Anyone seen this before?
