[wp-testers] Custom Post Type and Taxonomy Permalinks Broken?

I posted this in the forum, but didn't get an answer.

If I create a custom post type "movies" with custom taxonomies "directors" and "actors", this is what I get using the default Permalink structure:

(when I add a movie "clerks")


If i click on the "directors" taxonomy from that page:


When I click on the "actors" taxonomy from the movie page:


If I change Permalinks to /%category%/%postname%/  I get:


and then just


For director and actor respectively.

All of these just 404.

What am I doing wrong here? How can I fix the actors and directors  permalinks to show:


AND have them not 404? 

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
