Permissions question

Here's my scenario:

I have specified Allow permissions for each of the options in the Orchard.Blogs Feature, including Publish or unpublish own blog post & Publish or unpublish blog post for others. Even with this I couldn't publish or unpublish blog posts.

This work item http://orchardqa.codeplex.com/workitem/44 came up when I googled it so I thought that I had to Allow permissions to publish on the Contents feature. This worked in that I now had permission to publish or unpublish blog posts however I also now see the projection menu item because it has effective permissions that have come from the Contents feature.

Can someone please explain how permissions work? I've read this http://docs.orchardproject.net/Documentation/Understanding-permissions but it doesn't seem up to date.

Thanks.

Are you sure you modified the permissions on a role that the user account you are using is assigned to ?

Yes. I was refreshing the page and seeing the menu options change depending on my changes to the permissions for the role.

Please file a bug with a repro then, something like creating a new role, with a user in this role, adding the correct permissions and not being able to see the menu items.
