Bug: Formatted search ignores access permission when used with "order" option

Formatted search return the content of an access restricted page when used with the "order" option (this is not the case when used without the "order" option).

Users with no access permission for a resctricted page can view its content that way.

Test case

  1. Have unrestricted Web
  2. Create new page with some content and * Set ALLOWTOPICVIEW = Main.YourName
  3. Check WebIndex page with guest => no content is listed for new page
  4. Check WebChanges page with guest => content is listed for new page (Error!)
