Bug? in Permissions with Custom Fields -> Fill in One Text Area

I would expect “ModifyCustomField” to be the only permission required to change the value of a Custom Field’s value.

This is what happens when I enter three lines of text and save our “Fill in one text area” Custom Field:

#http://rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=35808#txn-244497 Thu Nov 04 12:10:32 2010 Joshua Narins - CustomFieldName oldvalues changed to line1
#http://rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=35808#txn-244498 Thu Nov 04 12:10:32 2010 Joshua Narins - CustomFieldName line1 changed to line2
#http://rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=35808#txn-244499 Thu Nov 04 12:10:32 2010 Joshua Narins - CustomFieldName line2 changed to line3

Three changes in one second, replacing one line at a time.

When I give myself AssignCustomField and try again it works.

The reason why it worked after I changed the permissions was unrelated. I had cut and pasted and it just so happened that the lines were so long in the text area that it looked like three lines, but it was really 1 line.

Any ideas why it is saving three times with a three line textarea?
