Error description

  • The object heading and object text attributes can be edited by a
    user who only has read access to the attribute value.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - create a module with some objects
     - restrict access to he values of object heading and object
    text to read-only for a given user
     - open the module as that user
     - right-click an object and open its properties dialog
     - now select the object again, so the focus returns to the
    module window
     - type some text (it will not appear) then select a different
    object
     - the first character of the text typed will be applied
    
    The modification will be applied to the heading if a previous
    heading value edisted, otherwise it will be applied to the
    object text.
    
    Workaround:
    
    Implement your own ACL system using a trigger.
