Site Admins can't edit journal users

We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
Site Admins can access a Journal Manager's Journal Management pages (by going to Hosted Journals -> [journal name]), but don't appear to have proper access to the user Edit options. If the Admin clicks on a user role (say, Editors) and then clicks on the "Edit" link next to a user name, the following URL works:
... but instead of the regular "Edit User" page, it's a "Create User" page, with all the fields blank.
There's a workaround for this: either log in as a JM, or enroll the Site Admin as a JM. And this isn't a typical use case, so priority shouldn't be high. But I thought I'd submit it just the same.
This problem keeps the same in version 2.3.5
Closing as there's a workaround for 2.3/4.x, and the entire user management system in OJS 3.x will be different.
