Members Online Now problem

I had a very strange thing happen today. I had 5 members online but it only showed me and one other member's name. But next to "online now" it showed 5 members. And I knew one of the 5 that wasn't listed was online because we were engaged in a conversation. Looked like this:

Luke Burgess,Lord Sid Valera
Online now: 10 (members: 5, guests: 30)
Any idea what could be causing it?

That means two things:

1) Those missing users are invisible:

2) You don't have permission to bypass user privacy:

Admin CP -> Users -> Moderators -> [click your name]

This permission can also be set in the usergroups.
