Issues can be assigned to this role - didnt work correctly
We have an API user and special role for this user.
This role have "Issues can be assigned to this role" box unchecked.
But when ticket is created by this API user, he's still listed in Assignee field of the ticket and the ticket can be aasigned to this user.
When ticket is created by someone else, it works OK.

Right now, the author of an issue is always a valid assignee as long as they are still active. In its original implementation, this was added in r4240 related to #4199. Right now, it appears to me to be a feature, not a bug :)
Here, your API user can thus be assigned to issues they created on their own but not arbitrary other issues.
