Users can't see private notes created by themselves if "Mark notes as private" is set but "View private notes" is not
If you configure the role permission as follows:
[x] Mark notes as private
[ ] View private notes
the users in this role can create private notes, but after creation they can't see them any more (see attachment).
Ok, I must admit that this is not really a bug because it exactly matches the configured settings, but in my opinion users should always be allowed to see their own (private) notes, regardless of the "View private notes" permission.

This clearly must be a defect. Why should a developer not be allowed to view his own technical private comments?? With the current configuration options, the whole private notes functionality cannot be used to allow developers to add their own details to an issue that need not concern their colleagues.
