Yes, but... I've created these users (for chop'n'slice /etc/passwd etc)
and added them all to a particular group.  That group has been given
privileges on a particular queue.  Ergo, the users in that group have
privileges on the queue... as long as each user has the privileged flag
set.  The latter isn't what I was expecting.

The comment in RT/CurrentUser.pm states this explicitly (Returns true if
the current user can be granted rights and be a member of groups), but the
WebUI/Other docs doesn't quite state this.

So, not a bug, a documentation issue ;)
