[development] with anonymous user able to edit nodes

I think I found the issue, contrary to what I stated at first, a permission modifying module was installed - node access. Didn't notice it at first, but after modifying it the problem has been resolved.

Thanks for you assistance, I greatly appreciate it.

The content_profile module doesn't have you to set any permissions for
the content profiles nodes, it does all permission check logic for you.

The only permissions you have to set for anonymous user are the field
permissions, only if you use the content_permission module.

Just leave all permissions for content profile node types empty (except
for administrator or moderator roles in order to be able to moderate
user profiles).

If users can still edit those nodes (other than their own nodes) maybe
it's a content profile bug, you should track it and may be ask for
support in the module issue queue.
