Hey guys,

Is this a bug or am I just being noob?

In 2.4.7 when logging in as the default admin I am unable to assign users to the Administrators group. I checked the changelog and in 2.4.6 found the follow commit:

By commenting out this function I was able to assign the accounts I had created to the administrator group using the default admin account.

Is the default admin user not being properly assigned to the admin group? Thus the function is denying onChangeGroups()? Or am I just being noob?
