[rt-users] user names appearing in comments dropdown

Jesse et al,

Sorry to say, I again need write the list about something we  noticed 
last week--namely, that the names of **disabled** users continue to 
appear in the Owner drop down one gets when "Commenting" on  ticket.

It appeared that the problem might have been due to the combination of

1) the fact that the AdminCc and Cc system groups had previously been 
granted the "own ticket" right; and

2) the fact that disabled users were  most likely still linked to 
Tickets as an AdminCC or Cc--

and thus still potential "owners".

However, the expected fix--globally revoking the "own ticket" right from 
AdminCc and CC--didn't work: the disabled users continue to appear in 
the Comment on Ticket "Owner" drop down as previously.

Has anyone else encountered, or better, resolved this phenomenon?
