There is no update existing field option available for a postgis vector layer when not logged on as the table owner.

After a quick scan of qgsfieldcalculator.cpp (line 46-51) I see that if the data provider does not support field addition it disallows existing field edits with mUpdateExistingGroupBox->setCheckable( false );. Should that not read mNewFieldGroupBox->setCheckable( false ); ?

Expected result - Limit some users to only update data and not the ability to create new fields. Editing data for these users works as expected using the attribute form on an individual features but not multiple row updates in the Field Calculator.
