This is a logic bug.  When you approve a block allocation request, you have to 
select a user group that is allowed to manage it.  "None" is one of the 
options.  When None is used as the managing user group, then only the owner of 
the block allocation can see it to manage it.  This was fine when only admins 
could be the owners.  However, now, if a normal user requests one, that user 
is the owner but doesn't have adequate permissions to manage it, resulting in 
a block allocation that cannot be managed at all.

So, you have to make sure you select an admin user group to be the managing 
user group when you accept it.  This will be fixed in 2.3.
