[wp-hackers] After adding custom role, admin panel becomes inaccessible

So I have a set of pages in my plugin which require the capability
'manage_finances' to be able to view. This works fine, if I give that
capability to the 'administrator' role I can see them fine.

I then created a custom role, with that very capability, like so:

add_role( 'treasurer', 'Treasurer', array('read', 'manage_finances') );

But when I assign that role to a test user, none of the admin panel is
accessible - not the dashboard, profile, let alone the page I specified. I
get this error:

You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

What could I be doing wrong?!
