Well, that would do the trick, but there are better solutions... you 
could take away that user's edit_group rights, if that's not what you 
intended, or you could make a user group that has those edit_group 
rights and make any number of users members of that group, or you could 
give LoggedInUser the edit_group rights, which would give all users 
those rights.

The thing is that this is not a bug or a problem -- it's the way 
UserAuth is supposed to work.  You specify who can do something, and 
that means that everybody else cannot.  So once you get a good grasp on 
the concept, it'll be easy from then on!  --Ben
