Default Forms Auth and Roles

I use Forms authentication in my project, I had no problems with it when my project was in 1.x, but since I moved it to 2.0 I am having trouble validating users in roles...they all come up as Authenticated, but false when I look at User.IsInRole("rolename")...is there a way to list out all the roles that a User is in?

I found my own answer here:

Dim cookieName As String = FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName
        Dim authCookie As HttpCookie = Context.Request.Cookies(cookieName)
        Dim authTicket As FormsAuthenticationTicket = Nothing
        authTicket = FormsAuthentication.Decrypt(authCookie.Value)
        Dim roles As String() = authTicket.UserData.Split(New Char() {"|"c})
        For Each r As String In roles
            Response.Write("arrayval=" & r & "<br />")
