Is the bulk manager tool broken?

I added someone as a profile manager using the bulk manager tool.  Imagine my surprise when I checked a file and found out it didn't actually add her, I had to go in the privacy tab and manually click add her.

1.  What did I do wrong?

2.  If nothing wrong, what is point of the bulk manager tool?

3.  Now I have to try figure out which profiles I added her too and MANUALLY click on add her.  :(  Grumble, grumble

Betty, I modified the header and added some tags to bring this issue greater attention.
Thank you so much!  It wasn't me, for once!  A rarity.  :)
Hi Betty. I just replied on this, thinking it was a new question (Vincent's new answer bumped it up). My mistake. I assume you've got your answer.

I find that if a bulk tool is selected, you should wait until it is finished loading before checking the boxes.  Otherwise, you can check all the boxes and when you come to the bottom of the page it is like your browser is crashed.  However, if you wait when first selecting a  bulk tool(check and make sure you can see the bottom of the page) everything works just fine.  That might have to do with my paltry wind-mill powered internet speed of only 50mbps, over in the US you guys are probably measuring your speed in GB or TB I don't know.

Hi Betty,

I'm not sure what happened. I ran a test, acting as you. I went to http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:ManagerChanges and selected "Add a designated person." I entered my own e-mail address, then selected Coat-107 on the next page. At the bottom of that page I clicked "continue" and was successfully added.

Is it still not working for you if you run a test like this?
