Issue/Introduction

:DELETE_VAR can access read-only variables in client 0

Investigation:

-Create a VARA named MYVAR in client 0 with 2 keys (KEY1,KEY2) and some values
-Choose the radio button "Share and allow read-only access
-Create a script in on other active client:

!!!!
:set &var0# = GET_VAR(MYVARA,KEY1,2)
:p &var0#

:PUT_VAR "MYVARA","KEY3","VALUE1","VALUE2"

:DELETE_VAR "MYVARA", "KEY2"
!!!!

-Run the script

While the values of the shared variable are accessible by GET_VAR, it is not possible to add to the variable, but it is possible to remove lines from the variable with :DELETE_VAR
