Based on my experimentation, if a user had only the "edit_questions"
capability, they would be able to view the "Questions" admin page, as well
as the "Add Question" page. However, when entering a question on the "Add
Question" page, the auto save script would throw a "You are not allowed to
edit this post" error at the bottom of the edit box. When they click "Submit
for Review" WordPress dies showing the "You are not allowed to edit this
post" error.

Andrew, have you created a custom post type with a custom capability and
successfully been able to recreate a contributor role using just
"edit_{custom_post}"? I haven't been able to make it work.
