In the Flagged Posts queue, I choose the "it has invalid flags" option. I receive this message:

You don't have the permission to use this type of flag

I most certainly should have this permission. Certainly I have before now. The flagging dialog also informs me I have 97 flags left to use today.

This has happened on more than one flagged post today.

  • This will have to wait for a dev, I think.

From the Meta post What does "You don't have the permission to use this type of flag" mean?

Figured it out. It happened only when the user hit the flags tab via the /tools route, since it was the last /tools tab he had open.

Fixed in next build that rolls out (before that happens you can simply work around by clicking visiting /tools/flagged). Watch for build rev 2014.1.9.1836 on meta and 2014.1.9.1287 on sites.
