groovy Visiblity Private fields and methods are not private in groovy


class MyClass { 
    private String privateField 

def prvtClss = new MyClass(privateField: 'qwerty') 
println prvtClss.privateField

will print us 'qwerty'

This issue is known since version 1.1 and there is a bug report on that: It is not resolved even with groovy 2 release.
