ASDM: Access rule fails with outside, succeeds with any

Using ASDM 6.4(5), ASA 8.2(5) on an ASA 5505,I followed a YouTube video titled "Cisco ASA 5505 Firewall NAT &  Access rule creation Part 2". It was largely what I wanted and  successful, but one part tripped me up. Per the video I created some objects for internal & external addresses, NAT rules to map them, and then this Access Rule:

Interface: outside

Action: Permit

Source: any

Destination: outside

Service: tcp/22, etc.

This worked for a test configuration. But after resetting the router to factory defaults and repeating the procedure, it failed until I changed the Destination from outside to any. This seems trivial, but I'd like to understand it.
