hostgroups can only be edited by a user with Administrator rights
Using foreman version 1.3.0, a user with no filters in a role with all permissions (such as the default Manager role) cannot view or edit hostgroups.
New hostgroups can be created and edited.
/hostgroups doesn't show any hostgroups not created by that user
/hostgroups/<hostgroupid>/edit results in Host Group Not Found. Log shows

Would you be able to re-test on Foreman nightlies (1.5)? The authorisation system has been rewritten to be more powerful, and Foreman has been updated throughout. I've given it a quick test on Foreman 1.5 and it seems to work fine, unfortunately I don't have 1.4 to hand to double check the steps there.
http://projects.theforeman.org/projects/foreman/wiki/Auth_testing_for_Foreman_15 has some more information.
