PhotoSearch returning private pictures

Hi, not sure if this is a bug or not, but in an application I have written I plug in the APIKey I get from flickr and if I do a photosearch using my flickrid I can return private photos. If I use any other userid I cannot see private photos.

If I run the application on someone elses PC if they are logged into flickr with their user and they search their photos they cannot see the private photos only public ones, if they search my photos they again can only see public photots.

Any idea why on my development machine I can see the private photos but on any other I cannot. Has the application for the APIKey dropped a cookie somewhere which implicitly gives me access to private photos? Its very confusing.

Actually, forget this, it seems some of my photos I assumed were private are in fact not. Sorry to waste your time
