The current authz access algorithm makes this happen. It will check all
accesses, and go for the rules which give the most access. And as tom is
also a part of '*', he gets read access.

But granted, the authz algorithm should also prioritize more specific
rules. I'll be overhauling the authz logic some time soon, I'll take a
look at this then.
