I noticed a question on my hosted site that the asker had posted his own (comprehensive) answer for. However, he did not mark the answer as accepted.
Having administrator privileges, I went ahead and marked the answer as accepted.
Whether or not it was my place to do so is another matter; for now we'll just assume it was justified for the purpose of establishing context to describe this issue (:
When I refreshed the page, I noticed that the user had gained 15 karma for his answer being marked as accepted. However, this is not correct; because the user answered his own question, he should not have gotten a karma bonus for the accept.
Also, I noticed that I got 2 karma for accepting the answer, even though it wasn't my question.

I think there are two points here that can become feature requests:
There should be an entry under "Karma Loss and Gain" in the admin interface field which allows the admin to set the karma awarded to a user:
for accepting their own answer.
for accepting an answer to a question which is not their own.
