> I don't want to sign up with SourceForge so here's a bug
> report right here.
> Sometimes version 2.1.5 lets a user A edit the options of
> another user B  as follows.
> User A consults the member list (using his name and
> password normally).  Here A picks an email address of user
> B. User A returns to the main  page, enters address of B
> in the Edit options slot and presses Edit  options.
> Normally Mailman requires a password, but sometimes IT
> DOES NOT  and goes straight to the editable options list
> page.
> I'd like to know if somebody else has experienced this
> behavior.
