#8008: Unpublished Pages Can Sometimes Be Viewed
 Reporter:  DeltaTee  |       Owner:  anonymous
     Type:  defect    |      Status:  new      
 Priority:  normal    |   Milestone:  2.8

 Severity:  normal    |    Keywords:           
 Pages which have been published and then set back to unpublished can still
 be viewed on the site by the author, while other users will see the 404

 1. Publish a page
 2. Note the author and guests can see the page on the site.
 3. Change the status to unpublished.
 4. Note the author can still see the page on the site
 5. Note that a guest cannot see the page on the site and gets a 404.

 Note: In some cases the guest may forego the 404 page and be sent to a
 wholly different post which has a similar permalink. (The 404 is still
 posted, the guest just never sees it.) I still haven't been able to
 reproduce this reliably though.
