Give customers access to one Confluence space

I want to give customers access to one space, and that's all.  So I do this:

  1. Create group customers.  Create customer mario.  Add mario to customers.  Add mario to no other group, not even confluence-users.
  2. In Confluence Global Permissions, add group customers to Groups, tick can use, deny all other permissions.
  3. In the Space Permissions for the space I want mario to see, grant view permission to group customers.  Make no change to the other spaces.
  4. Log in as mario.  I can still view every space, which is unsatisfactory.

This seems like it should be a super simple, ordinary usage of Confluence permissions.  What else do I need to do to deny a user access to spaces?

I am using Confluence 5.7 with JIRA 6.4 User Directory.

When anonymous access is denied in Global Permissions, a user must log in to see anything at all.

Nonetheless, you can still grant anonymous permissions to a space in Space Permissions.  This means that anyone who is logged in has those permissions.

Are these other spaces that the Mario customer can view open to anonymous? If they are then everyone can see them. If not then it must be a permission issue. Maybe you accidentally added him to another group which has access to all these spaces.
