Classifieds: Anyone Can End Ads; Exp. Date Does Not Work

WordPress 3.8 Single Site Install.
Created some test ads and it seems like anyone can delete them, whether the user is registered/unregistered or even if he does NOT have any privileges set. Tried this with a custom role and even with the Subscriber role.

To your guys' knowledge, is this WP 3.8 compliant? Has anyone seen this with any given version?

P.S. Another issue: Even if i set the expiration date to 1/2/3/4 weeks, the published ad says 'No exp. date set.'
