The 'Update information about me' icon does not display in the Web Console.

When launching the Web Console, the 'Update information about me' icon does not appear on the Web Console's home page for any Assistant Admins.  Only Built-in Admins see it and are able to use it.

This issue occurs when Assistant Admins do not have all the necessary powers to modify all items displayed in the "Self Administration" page.  If an Assistant Admins does not have power to modify only one of the displayed fields, the process that verifies the delegated powers fails as a whole.

To correct this issue, ensure that the Assistant Admin is granted all necessary powers to modify the fields displayed on the "Self Administration" page.

This issue will be handled differently in DRA version 6.6 and higher.  Starting with version 6.6, power checking for operations performed within the Web Console, will be done on a field-by-field basis.  If the Assistant Admin does not have the power for one field but does for all the rest, only that one field will be unavailable.
