I don't know either, but two updates from 3.6.6  to 3.8.1 resulted in 
identical problems - users appearing incorrectly in Owner menus, users 
able to see queues they shouldn't.

Happily, upgrading to 3.6.7 worked.  I just went through the exact same 
upgrade procedure a third time, but this time from 3.6.6 to 3.6.7 (the 
only difference being the manual checking for database upgrade 
scripts).  This time the resulting RT instance behaves normally.

Because of my 3.8 lust, I'm willing to spend a couple hours 
troubleshooting per the advice of Ruslan and others on the list.
