FacebookWebContext.HasPermission fails


FacebookWebContext.HasPermission fails in some cases because FacebookWebContext.HasPermissions doesn't take its "permissions" parameter into account.

For example, FacebookWebContext.Current.HasPermission("email") fails because it uses FacebookWebContext.Current.HasPermissions(..., ["email"]), which returns ["installed", "email", "status_update", ...] instead of just ["email"].

I may be able to provide a repro, but the problem and the solution are obvious.
A quick look at the incriminated method (FacebookWebContext.HasPermissions ) will allow you to see that the "permissions" parameter is not used. The solution is simply to take that parameter into account.

It's too bad this does not get fixed. It's so easy to do!
