Administrator and Keymaster problems

I notice that this page is not for support but as it seem like my problem is a problem with the plugin I still make a post here. I've made a post on WordPress support as well.

I've got a problem with Administrator / Keymaster and other roles when installing bbPress.

When setting up the site in 4.0 I created 2 administrators beside myself, and the rest of the members of the club I gave the roles of Authors or Editors (but in French Auteur and Editeur). When installing bbPress everyting screwd up. Suddenly everyone had the lowest role and the other administrators couldn't log in to the Dashboard but of some reason my previliges as Administrator remaind. When attempting to give back the roles as Admins to the other 2 accounts, there where no Admin in the list to so I couldn't give them that role. The highest role I could give them was Editor

I then deinstalled bbPress. My Administrator account then turned into Keymaster and the other two former Adminstrators turned into Editeurs (editor in French) but all the other members got their old roles.

So when now trying to give back the Administrors role to myslef (who is a Keymaster for the moment) and to the other 2 accounts there is no Administrator in the list just a mitchmach of roles in English and in French. What turnes up are (rmember that bbPress is deinstalled now):

  • Abboné
    • Participant
    • Moderator
    • Blocked
    • Spectator
    • Keymaster
    • Contributeur
    • Auteur
    • Editeur

(FYI I have today upgraded WordPress to 4.0.2)

What is this all about. How do I give people the roles of Adminstrator ???
