Not able to find the link at the moment but if I stumble upon it again I'll let you know.

Yes, this was what I expected too but unfortunately this is not happening. It seems that my RT will only place users into the Privileged group when I give them the "Let this user be granted rights" in the Access Control of the user.

I tried creating a user manually to verify that the module is not responsible for this problem and indeed you're right.
When created the user and loged in as him I still do not get the rights that I have defined for Everyone and Unprivileged.
The only options I have in the left side bar is to view the user's open and closed tickets and create a new one. 

Any idea what might be causing this problem or were I should start looking?
