--- Comment #8 from Cem Kaner <> ---
I was working with Mohammed Kuranga on this. I have a Windows 7 64-bit system
and am running OOo 3.4.0 build 9590.

The program seems to accept and change the status of protect records in a
reasonable way (deselecting record also deselects protect record seems ok).

The program blocks accepting or rejecting changes (from the Edit | Changes |
Accept or Reject) selection until the user changes the password. As Mohammed
notes, when the program is in protected mode and you view changes, it does not
provide an option _at_that_dialog to enter a password and accept or reject
changes. This is an inconvenience that some people might consider a bug, but it
is not a security issue.

But with protect records on, if I simply move the cursor to a recorded change
and right-click, the context menu provides an accept or reject change option
and I can accept or reject the change. This is inconsistent with the protection
provided by the accept/reject dialog and so it appears to be a bug. This
replicates the original report and we see it on my system and Mohammed's.
