FogBugz has lost permission...

When saving site settings, I got the following error message:

FogBugz has lost permission to write to the registry keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Fog Creek Software\FogBUGZ. Setup grants these permissions to FogBUGZ for this key and all subkeys; they may have been overwritten somehow and now you will need to readd them using regedt32, or regedit.exe. Make sure the user you installed FogBUGZ as has permission to write to this key

Yet, checking the registry key shows the FogBUGZ user as having write access to the key FogBUGZ.

Is there anything else I need to check ?

Restarting IIS usually solves this problem.  It's a strange IIS quirk for which the only workaround is to go to the Internet Services Manager control panel and right click on the computer icon, choose All Tasks, Restart IIS.

That solved it.
