It would make life much easier if Unlisted profiles were visible to the profile manager of the unlisted profile  (and perhaps those  on his trusted list) rather than being shown as private son.

Unlisted profiles *are* visible only to the Profile Manager and the Trusted list.

Alas, that is not always true. Any number of times, as I've been working on the fringes of my watchlist, I have seen profiles that I manage listed as "private" when I'm looking at other related profiles. It's not a consistent problem, and I'm not exactly sure how it comes about, but one condition that seems to trigger it is if I'm looking at a profile that I don't manage, and am not on the trust list for, but where the unlisted profile is a sibling, parent, or child of the person whose profile I'm looking it. Normally, I just backtrack until I can see that profile again, but it is disconcerting.

If anyone else sees this and has another example of where a profile they are on the trusted list for shows as private/living/unlisted, let me know.

Actually, I found another case. I search on Waddell (which is one of the names in my family tree), then clicked on the "limit to Watchlist" link. All the living Waddells show up as unlisted. (I can find them in my own watchlist, but in the "Waddell Genealogy" list, I can't get into them.)
