Giving a user the "Can change user" permission in the admin interface, automatically enables this user to also give him/herself or anyone else any other permission, including superuser status. That's unexpected because there is a separate "Can change permission" flag, which seems to be ignored.
Specifically, I wanted to allow users to change their own details, or at least password...
