Why can't I create a new project from a template project?

If I try when logged in as the admin user it works fine, but when I'm logged in as a non-admin user that is in the Project Manager group I get the following error:


Field(s) `project_escalation_id` failed against a constraint: Error! You cannot assign escalation to the same project!

Error details:


The requested operation cannot be completed due to security restrictions. Please contact your system administrator.

(Document type: project.project, Operation: read)

I have tried setting the Project Escalation field to a different project or leaving it blank and I still get the same error.

I just figured it out.  Annoyingly if the Privacy / Visibility setting for the template is set to "Private project: followers Only" this error occurs (which I think is a bug).  If you change that setting to Internal or Public Project, then the the new project gets created from the template fine.

We use the Private project setting a lot to avoid having other users lists of projects being cluttered with projects that aren't relevant to them, so I guess we'll just have to work around the bug by changing the setting and changing it back.
