Description

I made a new install of redmine and was demo'ing features to colleague and noticed that with the default 'admin' user, you can't change issue status (either via right-click or in edit issue form). If you create a new user, you can change status without issue.

Apparently, /models/issue_status.rb#find_new_statuses_allowed_to logic doesn't work for admin (should just return all statuses whenever that method is hit by admin rather than collecting statuses via workflows)

I would advocate using 'admin' for regular use, but for demo, this made redmine look bad when admin superuser couldn't change status.

Meant to say I would not advocate using 'admin' for regular use.
