Description

What I did:

Logged in as the super-admin, at the main site.
Wanted to change the password of one of the subscribers of the site (who is an admin on his own site)
Attempted changing it
Got a "you do not have sufficient privileges to do this" message.
Got myself demoted to a regular site admin
Do not have access to super-admin powers anymore, and can't see the super-admin links either.
