View rights inconsistently enforced between Profile discussions & comments!

If you have Categories that have different View permissions (i.e. non-signed in users may not view), the visibility is not enforced correctly between the following pages:

yes - hides discussions started by the user in categories that are not permitted to view

NO! - shows all latest comments by the user regardless of category permissions

This is a *major* privacy/security hole that puts any board at risk that has category view rights assigned to select groups.

Is anyone familiar with the code behind the Discussions and Comments tabs on a user's profile page? The former checks for rights whereas the latter doesn't.
