I agree it may not be a bug - but it's more than the permissions not
being inherited: the parent is affected.

That makes sense :-)
I was experimenting with inheritance for the first time and for me this
effect was a real suprise.
It would be handy if this was in the documentation for anyone else who
comes across this issue
Would it be possible to allow the usual select and just return the
records the user has permission for - possibly along with a warning
about the child table?
