Kris -

This happened both on a user added via command line (the one I sent) and 
on one added via the PC-BSD Users Manager. Adding the user to operator 
worked, but I had to go into the advanced mode of the user manager to do 
it. Users are not in operator by default.

Unrelated: While I was there, I discovered some gripes about the user 
manager . Adding a user to a group (advanced mode) resets the selected 
group to the top of the list, meaning that you can't add a number of 
users to a particular group in sequence - you have to select the group 
again every time. Worse, when you remove a user from a group, the user 
manager quits.
