Making a community private doesn't make it private

Bug Description

Choosing "Private" on the add-community or edit-community view should result in the community being made private. Instead, here is what happens:

1) Click Add Community.

2) Choose Private and save.

3) Click Overview, then Edit to get to edit-community.

4) The "Public" radio button is selected.

5) Additionally, a different staff user is still able to get to the community, thus it isn't private.

I checked and the form handling is "right", meaning the code gets the right value from the form and follows the branching correctly. This one is probably more important than other bugs (though I didn't mark High) because it impacts a broad range of evaluation.

Sorry, looks like I clicked Save on the bug before I finished
writing. Poor job at multitasking. I'll fill in the body now.

Jiggling the "private/public" toggle on the edit form now changes security.

I can't replicate the "other staff can see private community" claim.

I can't recreate it either. Must have been a malfunction on my part.

Just tested, toggling security works, though I just found an issue
I'll report separately.
