Actually you are right. But that only works when the passwords are in 
plain-text. For


entry in the gnatsd.acess file would let you in as admin even if 
gnats.host_acess is set
to 'view'. But, as soon as I encrypt the password (haven't tested md5 yet), it 
seem to care.

I think we have a bug.. should I enter a PR for this one?

In version 3.x (I don't think they changed it for V4?), the user's access
can increase the access level granted in host_access, but not lower it.
