Has the anonymous access functionality changed?

I thought that by disabling anonymous access in the Global Permissions settings of Confluence, that this would prevent ALL anonymous access to my site. Has that functionality changed?

It seems that even with anonymous access disabled in the Global Permissions, that space administrators can allow anonymous access to thier space.

This seems wrong to me.

Disabling anonymous access in Global Permissions does prevent all anonymous access.

The permission for anonymous access will still be shown in the space admin screens, but will not do anything - it will be overidden by the global permission.

Check out last section in http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Setting+up+Anonymous+Access to see how to disable anonymous access. Or have you already tried that?
