User roll settings does not allow group to see hidden/private forums

I used the members plugin by Justin to create a new role 'forum moderator' and for that role I applied the following permissions
The important part is I assigned the ability to see hidden and private forums to the user group.
I then changed all of my members who were moderators on my old system to moderators on the new system.
I create a forum and choose either private or hidden. The problem is my forum moderators, when they go to that forum, get a page not found.
Strange part, is if they go through the admin they are able to see the posts in the hidden/private forum just fine and can even reply to them.
In fact if they know the url to a topic that is in a private/hidden forum then they can see it just fine in their browser, and can reply.
It is only when they try to go directly to the private/hidden forum that they get the page not found error.
*If I change the forum permission back to standard, then they can see the forum just fine.
As the site admin I can see the forum just fine.
There seems to be no permission setup where I can create either a private or hidden forum and allow any group to access them.
Maybe there is a permission checkbox that I missed above?
