"good work" detects root even with rootcloak

(I had posted the below to the forum at resurrectionremix.com, but after experimentation with other ROMS, it seems to be a more general issue, so I am re-posting here. The same issue appears under Chroma)

Recently, I began using Resurrection Remix on my Nexus 5. I had been running a Marshmallow version of Cataclysm, though when I attempted to obtain an upgraded build, I learned that the author has discontinued the project. I chose to try RR, and I am pleased with the responsiveness of the interface as well as the extensive configurability.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the reason why Good Work (Good Technology's successor to Good For Enterprise) is able to detect that my device is rooted when running over Resurrection Remix with RootCloak and Xposed, but not with the same configuration over Cataclysm.

My installation is from build "Resurrection Remix Mashmallow 6.0.1_r46 - MOB30M".

I discovered a forum post from a Good Technology representative explaining that the software does seek to detect certain ROMs, as well as detecting root, that it considers unsafe.

I tried installing a version of /system/build.prop with all references to RR and root removed or replaced with stock values, in order to try to spoof any attempt to detect the RR customization. However, this change produced no beneficial effect.

By design, Good software does not save logs or any other data once it detects root.

I have not been able to make progress on solving this issue, so I am looking for help.

Thank you.
