The descriptions for Altruist and Benefactor on the privilege page seem to be switched:

Privilege page: https://stackoverflow.com/privileges/set-bounties

Altruist — manually award a bounty on a question of your own
Benefactor — manually award a bounty on somebody else's question

Badge page

Altruist - First bounty you manually awarded on another person's question
Benefactor - First bounty you manually awarded on your own question

Good catch. You can fix this yourself! Any user with at least 2k MSO rep can fix this! All of the privileges pages are based on a "master" here at Meta Stack Overflow. Our noble, hypothetical editor would simply need to click the "edit wiki" link at the bottom of https://meta.stackoverflow.com/privileges/set-bounties to make the changes.

    Thanks @Anna! You are indeed both noble and entirely real. I would've fixed it myself, but I got a new task for that "day job" thing just as I was finishing up this answer. – Pops May 16 '11 at 20:25
