My Profile popup window (link in bottom right of backend) doesnt work if logged in as a user with rights to Reports only.

SS version: 2.4.4

I created group "testgroup" which has access only to Reports tab. After i login i can see only Reports tab which is correct. But when i need to edit my profile (link in bottom right of backend) Reports tab is shown inside popup. Cant edit my userdata :(

Is it bug or behaviour? Any hints?

guess i'm too late to help you
but in case anyone else is having the same problem:
found that the problem exists only for users who don't have access to the 'pages' section of the cms.
it's because the 'canView' action of LeftAndMain.php (that's also where the 'myprofile' action is can be found) checks for permission code 'CMS_ACCESS_LeftAndMain'. so it's by design, but easy to patch.

Since bugtracker is down... What is your solution Schellmax?

I think I'm thinking wrongly on how to get this fixed.
