TFS Admin 2.1 Tool and Disappearing Entries

Our TFS 2010 install is used both by Business Analysts and our Developers. The Analysts only need access to SharePoint\ Reporting Services, not TFS Source control, so I created just such a record for them under TFS Admin. Then I  successfully committed the record but noted that the record immediately disappeared from the Admin tool. I re-created the same record, committed it again, and once again the record vanished fom the Admin tool. The History tab showed the record was indeed created so something is odd.

I checked SharePoint and found the Analyst assignment I made was indeed present in SharePoint. Under Team Explorer I manually assigned the Analyst group "read" only permissions to the TFS site and the missing record now appeared under TFS Admin.  I think this is a bug in the product. Do you agree?

TIA,
