I found this is a problem with CMFMember (it works fine on sites without 
CMFMember) and filed a bug:


I also tried the CMFMember 1.0.1 bug-fix release, that fixes something 
to do with MembershipTool.searchForMembers() "causing the Plone's local 
roles form to break." But it didn't fix this particular 
search/role/member bug.
