[TYPO3-50-general] Lost Administrator access on upgrade

Hi Christian,

Before migration I had for one account roles 

After migration for the same account in the 
typo3_flow_security_account_roles_join table i have:

TYPO3.Neos:Editor and TYPO3.TYPO3CR:Administrator roels assigned to the 
account. So basically no TYPO3.Neos:Administrator role was assigned.

I investigated the migration Version20130319131400 from TYPO3.Flow 
package which handles the role migration. And I found that 
Administrator was mapped to TYPO3.TYPO3CR:Administrator

var_dump of the $rolesFromPolicy array

 integer 0 => string "TYPO3.Neos:Editor" (17)
 integer 1 => string "TYPO3.Neos:Administrator" (24)
 integer 2 => string "TYPO3.TYPO3CR:Administrator" (27)

var_dump of the $map array

 string "Editor" (6) => string "TYPO3.Neos:Editor" (17)
 string "Administrator" (13) => string "TYPO3.TYPO3CR:Administrator" (27)
 string "Anonymous" (9) => string "Anonymous" (9)
 string "Everybody" (9) => string "Everybody" (9)

So I think this could be an issue and a special migration might be 
needed in TYPO3.Neos package maybe :)
