"All rights reserved" notice in LGPLed code

I was looking at the TinyMCE code distributed by Debian, and I noticed
that some of the source files say "all rights reserved", while others
don't have a copyright notice at all.

They include a copy of the LGPL version 2.1 in their distribution, but
there is no clear indication of this applies to all the files or only
some of them.

I get the impression, from the statements made in Moxiecode's website,
that they intend to apply the LGPL to all of their code, and that all
of the code that they distribute is under their copyright.

Is the somewhat unconventional copyright notice in TinyMCE's source a
problem at all? I think Moxiecode's intent to release this as free
software is clear, although their lawyers seem to have muddled things
a little. :-)
