Steps to reproduce the issue

What we have

A fresh installation of Joomla! 3.7.3

User U (Publisher group, Administrator Login allowed, Access Administration Interface allowed for both modules and menus)
Menu M, containing the main menu
Module M, displaying the main menu M

User U can edit by default all the modules

Now we set the permissions of module M denying Edit and Edit state actions to Publishers.

The Advanced Permissions Report for User U shows that’s all correct, user U is allowed to edit the menu M but can’t modify the corresponding module.

When user U logins in the administration panel he can see the list of modules, and the module M isn’t editable.

What happens

Step 1.
User U logins in the administration panel

Step 2.
User U navigates to Menus > Manage

Step 3.
User U clicks on Modules button in "Linked Modules" column

Step 4.
User U select module M item in the dropdown list

Expected result

The module M item in the dropdown list shouldn’t be active
OR
The popup window shown after clicking on module M item should report that user U hasn’t the rights to modify the module

Actual result

User U, clicking on module M item in the dropdown list, gets a popup window that allows him to edit all the values of the module, except Status, Start publishing and Finish publishing.

System information

Joomla! Version
Joomla! 3.7.3 Stable [ Amani ] 4-July-2017 08:03 Joomla! Platform Version

Additional comments

If we deny global edit permissions for modules to user U, the system works fine: he cannot modify M. When user U try to modify module M from ”Linked Modules", the popup window shows an "Error Edit not permitted.." red warning).
