Imagecache settings not available to any user except UID 1?

Seriously, what? Imagecache enabled, the role has every single permission checked, but no Imagecache under sitebuilding (or anywhere else) and the Administer by module listing just gives a link to imagecache permissions, which my user has, as if only to mock me.

Log in as user #1 and it works, the settings for imagecache are there. This is imagecache2 in a site that's been upgraded from Drupal 4.7 to Drupal 5 and Imagecaches 1 to 2.


Sidebar graphics with links ("promotional badges") the Agaric Drupal way

Any imagecache type you create can be chosen for CCK image

Moral of the story, when you're dealing with Views, assume it can be done through the user interface. There is full and amazing Imagecache support of Views.
