Strange Alfresco Permissions Behavior

Hi,

I'm facing a strange Alfresco permissions behavior, don't know if it's a bug or it was designed to work this way.

Build: v3.4.0 (a 3169) (postgres)

Let's suppose you have a Space named "Dad" and a sub Space of this one, named "Son".
And you have a user called "UserY" that is a member of the "GroupX".

When you put Consumer (read) permissions do GroupX on space "Dad" and editor (or other write) permission to UserY on space "Son", the user get a error (above) when trying to update or check out a item on space "Son".

This is alfresco normal behavior or should I open a bug tracker?

Thanks.
