Guests can post even after disabling guest posts?

I don't have the possibility to test this, so bare with me and someone test it with the CVS'd version.

I was told that in Y2.1 this scheme is possible:

First guest posting is enabled and there are no restrictions in a board.
During that time, a guests opens a new topic, hence being "a topic starter".
Then the board permissions get tightened up, but in the forum settings guest posting is enabled, but some boards have permissions so that topic starter can reply. Now, as the topic starter was a guest, other guests can reply as well, them having the same status as the topic starter.

Hi
If I understand right. first post of guest a topic in a guestboard without permission for this board.
After this set for this board permission for Topicstarter and leave guestposting enabled. Guest cannot reply there if guestposting still enabled.

Example
http://www.grafix-world.nl/cgi-bin/yabbcvs/YaBB.pl?num=1185565579

As guests is no reply button if set Topicstarter. But have a add poll Button.

Could you get create a screenshot of the board permissions of that board so I can compare them with the original case?

Somehow a guest WAS able to post where he should have not...  Huh

Is this even considered a bug ?  If Guests allowed to Post ... then they Post ... if an Admin decides this is bad .. he tightens up permissions .. but doesn't deselect Topic Starter ... of course Guests can Post.  Only way conceivable to keep ALL Guests from doing so is recording IP OR disallowing any Guest from being a Topic Starter... worth the trouble to dummy proof Admin omissions ?
