Yes, this should be restricted to admin users only as access to the file system 
for all users could result in undesired security problems or other issues.

This issue was corrected in change set 4999.

I am not able to reproduce this behavior in the latest change set, which is 
5053.  This change set should be available in the distribution within a few 
weeks, or if you want to run the latest code you could pull directly from our 
development repo at:

Keep in mind that the development repo is less stable than the distribution.
