Ensure that General Options -> emergency is No and also on the
Membership Management... -> Membership List page under "Additional
Member Tasks" set "Set everyone's moderation bit, including those
members not currently visible" to Off and click "Set" to ensure all mod
flags are off.

These things are very strange, but I have no idea what could cause that.
