Previewing a page in frontend disables all enabled fields, including workspaces
When you have several pages which are disabled and make a preview to one of them, you'll see the others in the navigation, as well. Furthermore the workspace, which is i.e. limited to one of these pages, will not be respected anymore, too.
I create a new page, which should not be displayed in frontend. So I deactivate it. Then I create a backend user which may access just this page (and subpages). Addionally I create a workspace, for this user and this page. The user may not publish to live.
I repeat this for several new pages and users.
Each user should not be able to see the changes of the other users, unless it has been published to live.
Generally this works, but if one of the pages is disabled - and the user does a preview on it - he will see not only all other disabled pages of his workspace - he'll see all pages, of all workspaces. And this does not fit my requirement in the paragraph before, because he can see everything.
I hope I've described the bug cleary and you are able to fix it. Otherwise I'd like to answer your questions.

- Status changed from New to Needs Feedback
The workspaces issue should be resolved by now. If you preview a hidden page, and there are other pages that are hidden as well, TYPO3 enables the "show hidden content" and "show hidden pages" flags automatically (which can also be configured via Admin Panel), which is expected behavior currently. However, we could mark this as a breaking change to only preview the current page (but then: including current content as well?) which is hidden, and not respecting this in the menus etc.
What do you think?
I read from people using the "hidden" pages to simulate some kind of "poor-mans-workspaces" to preview a new state of the website, so we might make some people unhappy (but that's life).
