Currently the drop box code refers to the Reader SPRoleType http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.sproletype.aspx to get the role to give read level permissions. This includes the SCCCreateSite base permission which isn't copied when creating custom levels. So if you use your own custom levels and then delete the built in ones, SLK doesn't like it.

This needs to be configurable really. I thought that there was an issue about this, but I can't find it so please add one.
