 I'm one of the (seemingly) many who have the "you don't have permission to
 do that" problem.  I've tried re-asserting myself in the administrator
 role... No luck.  Couldn't even create a user with javascript enabled.
 So, I did some looking into it.  It appears that when the call is made to
 check capabilities, it is looking for the capability "unfiltered_html"
 first, then failing and giving the permission error.  And that's with
 deleting categories, adding categories, deleting posts, and adding users.
 Also, I double-checked the database wp_usermeta table to ensure that the
 two fields for my level and role were set to 10 and administrator (well,
 a:1{s:"Administrator";b:1;})...and they are.  I hope that helps in
 determining the source of the error a little bit more.
