Hi Andre,

Looking at the code, the error is due to a weird kludge I did for MW1.13.  I need to decide whether I still need to support the older versions and do some testing, but in the meantime, could you check to see if this version works for you?  Just replace your SpecialUserRightsList.body.php with the attached file.
