[Mediawiki-l] Some extension functions only working for users logged in

I have got a problem with some extension (CategoryTree, ParserFunctions) only 
working for users that are logged in. If not logged in, the plain tags are 
displayed (CategoryTree) or the output is completely garbled.

I can rule out that any settings in Localsettings.php are causing this error 
(have tested it on a test instance). I have also tried the latest snapshot of 
CategoryTree from SVN. It is also no browser or caching issue.

The interesting thing is that Special:Version also differs for users logged in 
/ not logged in. Among others, <categorytree> is only listed under "Parser 
extension tags" when logged in:


Any hints what could cause this error?
