[Moin-user] Confused about ACLs - can't the page creator determine access?

I'm trying to figure out Moin's ACLs, but they just don't seem to work the
way I'd expect.  I went to create a new page with ths acl:

    #acl SkipMontanaro:read,write,admin All:

(while logged in as SkipMontanaro).  When I attemped to save the page, Moin

    You can't change ACLs on this page since you have no admin rights on it!

ACLs are enabled, but there are no changes from the defaults in the config

    % egrep -i acl wikiconfig.py
        # Enable acl (0 to disable)
        acl_enabled = 1
        # All acl_right_xxx must use unicode [Unicode]
        #acl_rights_before = u"Known:admin All:read"

What am I missing?  As the creator of a page shouldn't I be allowed to be
its admin?
