Did you use the groups tag in your XML code when overriding this button? That should help. Also make sure that you are on the right form-view. Make sure that in your xml-view your replace the button entirely. Sometimes (for reasons unknown) the adding of attributes does not seem to work. 

Also, in developer mode, make sure that your groups configuration was actually set by opening the form view that you are on.

The last method (which is NOT recommended and considered a dirty hack) is to overwrite the method that is called from the button and have Odoo search for a list of user that can press it. If the current user (uid) is not in that list, raise an error.

<xpath expr="//button[@name='invoice_open']" position="replace">
