Unpriviledged remote suspend

Trying out FC5, I'm rather surprised that an unpriviledged user can initiate
suspend from a remote X terminal.
The shutdown option is missing (as expected)
but the suspend option remains.
As my HP nx9010 laptop doesn't seem to recover from suspend, this means any
remote user can trigger an instant denial of service!
Should this be bugzilla'd (or has it been noted already?)
