Access denied error on sharepoint 2010 pages with broken inherincet

Recently we were stumped by a very strange issue with Sharepoint 2010 publishing page library where we were unable to give users access on one page in pages library.
The way it is supposed to work is
1. We break inheritance for a particular page(Say page P) in pages library
2.Give read access to user A on Page P
3. User A automatically gets Limited Access on pages library ,site and site collection
4.User A directly accesses the Page
Expected result :Page P is displayed
Actual result:User gets access denied
