Unable to update admin privileges

I was experimenting with permissions and roles and I apparently got myself stuck in a corner...

I removed the Advanced permission `Read Issue Private Fields` from the admin role, but am now getting that check box grayed out, stating "You can't change a permission that you don't currently have."  I can't change that permission for any other role.  I can't restore it to myself.

Am I missing something in the UI?  If not, can this be fixed?

Hi Joe,

That's known use case. So, you're right, if remove a permission from admin, it's impossible to restore it by himself.
I'm able to restore your YouTrack 'root' account. Please, send us your instance name on youtrack-feedback@jetbrains.com, I'll reply you with default 'root' credentials.

Thank you.
