[Mauiusers] Command "setspri"

Hi all,

We are using torque 2.16 and maui 3.2.6p16. I just found out that a user 
can use "setspri" to adjust his/her jobs' priorities. I always thought 
that only the Maui administrator could execute this command. My questions 

Is this the normal behavior of maui that a user can execute setspri?

If not, what could be the reason for this abnormal behavior?

Is there a way to prevent the users from being able to use setspri? 
Because this causes the behavior that everyone just sets the priorities up 
and this is not a reasonable way to prioritize.

I would appreciate any pointers. Thank you!

Best regards, Berit
