Taxonomy Checkboxes sync to any checkbox array on the edit form

In the default configuration it works fine. But if a plugin adds another checkbox array to the form, these checkboxes also become a sync source for the category checkboxes. Category checkboxes are (un)checked when the plugin checkbox is clicked.
This occurs only with plugin-defined checkbox arrays, and only for checkboxes whose values attribute matches a category ID. So there is a limited incidence, but potentially significant severity. The error would presumably also occur with custom taxonomy checkboxes.
- Activate Role Scoper plugin
- Edit or Add New Post
- In the Readers metabox, toggle the checkbox of a Group or User whose ID value matches any Category ID (Firebug is helpful here).
