Which version of the server are you using? As of later versions (I just
tested this on 0.15) as long as the user has write access to the
collection (which they should if they own the collection) then they will
have write access to items in that collection regardless of the owner.
Is the collection created using root credentials? If so, there
currently isn't a workaround for that case.
