OK, I've found it, at least on the local install.
In the contributor search results screen, there is a link labeled "New"
in between "Edit" and "Log," which allows me to add a role to a
On the upgrade, this link does not appear for any of the contributors,
but I don't remember it from the pre-upgrade install either.
Interestingly, on an older install I work with (1.10.3), the link
appears for some contributors, but not for all. It appears that only the
ones offering the link have the "Default" role.
For these, the contributor profile shows two extra sections: one lists
custom fields for the "Default" role. (It's an empty list, but it's
there.) The next section is for switching roles. But there's only one in
the system, "Default," so it's just text instead of a label.
So it looks as if some contribs have the default role, and some don't,
and only the ones that have the default have the option of adding any
I've never used roles and don't have any idea what roles are for, but
I'm stuck on the idea that there's some connection between the absence
of the default role and the ordering bug. Probably unlikely, but
considering the bug is otherwise un-reproduceable, I don't have many
trees to bark up.
