Users can see, edit cases not assigned to them (Online trial)

I know this sounds bizaare because this appears to be a problem in the core functionality of FogBugz, but I just started a testdrive from Fogcreek's server and some of my users can see and edit cases not assigned to them.

I've four users, and two of them seem to have this capability. There accounts are (positively) absolutely identical to the users who are unable to do so.

I've just started trying out FB so maybe I'm missing something but I'm really at a loss here.

Users are permitted to see cases not assigned to them. 

If you want to set up permissions for a group of people, create a new Client or Department and segment the permissions there, and then assign a Project to that Client or Department.  The people within that Client or Department will still have permissions to see the cases assigned to other users within their group though.  This is by design.

No, but can people /edit/ and /reassign/ bugs not assigned to them?

That's what's happenning. Take a look at the screenshot I've uploaded for you at

You can clearly see users editing and reassigning bugs that are currently not assigned to them.

Is this by design?
