Tasks do not appear under "My tasks" or under "All tasks" when you select the "Only their own" option on a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 team site

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario. You create a new Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 team site. Then, you create a new task on the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0team site. You add a new user and then assign the user Contribute permissions. On the List Advanced Settings: Task page for the task, you click to select the Only their own check box under Read access or under Edit access.

In this scenario, when the user visits the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0team site and then clicks My tasks or All tasks, the user cannot see the assigned task.
CAUSE
This behavior occurs if you select the Only their own option under the Read access permission or Edit access permission on the List Advanced Settings: Task page for the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 team site. When this option is selected, the user can only edit and read items that the user created. If the user did not create the task, the task does not appear under My tasks or under All tasks.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this behavior, click to clear the Only their own check box under Read access or under Edit access on the List Advanced Settings: List page.
STATUS
This behavior is by design.
