Connecting to SharePoint Task Lists and Only Getting Items Assigned to You

I have a functional MOSS Sharepoint site, and a userbase running Office (Outlook 2007)
I have several Task lists whose items have different people "Assigned To" different tasks.

Anyone who uses the "Connect to Outlook" synchronizes the entire Task list, -not just the items assigned to them.  Worse, once this is done, users are able to edit each other's Tasks in Outlook (reflected in the SharePoint site Task list), but are unable to edit *any* SharePoint Task list item; -even those assigned to them.

Is this the current state of SharePoint --> Outlook Task integration?  This is not functional.  

Is there a way to manage only a user's Tasks synchronizing to Outlook ?

Any help understanding or correcting this behavior is greatly appreciated.
