Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Release: 12.04

  Installed: 2:0.25.0+fixes.20120410.1f5962a-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 2:0.25.0+fixes.20120410.1f5962a-0ubuntu1
  Version table:

Steps to reproduce:
1) Have multiple items in your video library tagged as parental control level 4
2) Setup -> Media Settings -> Video Settings -> General Settings
3) On Screen 3, observe that Starting Parental Level is set to "1 - Lowest"
4) Media Library -> Watch Videos
5) Observe that videos which were tagged as level 4 are already visible.
6) Pressing "1" to switch to level 1 has no effect.
7) Pressing "4" to switch to level 4 prompts for a pin as designed, no visible changes (level 4 was already visible)
8) Pressing "1" again at this point causes the level 4 titles to be removed from the display.

Justification for marking as security:
- Security restrictions bypass, allows minors without the parental control pin to potentially view explicit content.

Not sure if this is worth a separate bug, but the "require setup pin" setting is not honored either, all of the setup menus are available without a pin even if you have one set.
