Hi -

	I am looking at the creation of new users. At the bottom of the 
page there is a huge table of courses for which the new user can be made 
course coordinator, student, instructor, etc.... 

	I continue to have a large number of blank entries there (no 
course title). I figured these were leftovers from the fact that I had a 
number of deceased courses from poorly executed moves in the early 

	In looking more closely, it seems to actually be related to the 
co-author roles that I have.

	The user lucas has a lot of different roles: co-author on about 10 
users, course coordinator for a number of courses, student, domain 
coordinator, and author. It seems that when building this table, the 
included courses are those in my environment over which I have change? 
(cm?) privileges.

	I not only have cm privilege over courses, but also over other
users. So these get listed in the hash %inccourse in loncreateuser.pm.
When it comes time to spit out the table, I get student, course 
coordinator, instructor lines for each coauthor account.

	Am I reading this correctly? If so, I'll put in a bug report.

	Should the domain coordinator have the ability to add co-authors 
to users for which it itself has co-authors?
