Shahid Mohammad Shamsi (mshamsi(at)dinmar(dot)com) reports a bug with a severity of 2
The lower the number the more severe it is.

Short Description
select table privilege  in postgres allows user to create index on the table

Long Description
I created a user and assigned select privilege on a table. The user can not insert any data or add a field to the table. But, the user can create indexes on the table despite having select only privileges. This becomes a serious problem if the user can create unique indexes.
