Admin user unable to author pages

Description

I had been creating pages without incident using the original admin account that has Administrator level access. Once I created three additional accounts with Editor level access, I no longer had the ability to create or edit a page so that the author of the page was the admin user.

It appears that this problem has been traced to no user level being defined (wp_user_level) in the database for the admin user upon installation.

It occurred in my installation which uses WordPress 2.7, PHP 5.2.5, MySQL 5.0.45

It also appears to occur in WP versions 2.5.1, 2.6, 2.6.1 and 2.6.2, per the discussion (link below).

I apologize if someone has already reported this bug. There has been discussion of this bug located here.
