[wp-hackers] Custom Post Type Capabilities

An update on this issue. I incorrectly said a user can edit the custom posts
of others. They can't, but it *looks* like they can because they are
presented with the edit links.

For example, a subscriber with "edit_movie" and "edit_movies" capabilities
will see edit links for "movies" posted by an admin. If they follow these
edit links, they can modify the movie post, but once they click "Update", WP

Were you seeing this behaviour Andrew? I've tested it on three different WP
3.0 RC installs using this mock plugin: http://gist.github.com/420859 with
an admin and a subscriber.

I've followed the edit links from their beginning in _post_rows function
where it checks if a current_user_can( $post_type_object->cap->edit_post,
$post->ID ) right through to the call to map_meta_cap but have to leave it
there for now. Maybe I'm adding capabilities incorrectly - user error? But a
subscriber user without edit_others_*** capability is definitely being
served edit links when using a custom capability_type.
