wp_user_level not being defined for admin on clean install

Doing a clean install of WP 2.8.5 does not initialize the wp_user_level value for the "admin" user in the database. It should be set, and set to a value of "10".
This was previously reported for 2.1.x and apparently fixed, but the fix seems to have disappeared.
The lack of the user level for the default admin user is that some plugins prohibit administration. Current workaround is to either manually create the entry in the database or to create an alternate admin user (for which the wp_user_level field is properly created and set to 10).
