Access Denied when Opening Task

One of my users complained about getting an "access denied" message when trying to respond to a flexi-task. This user has rather limited permissions, so I suspected the problem was there, but I can't see anything wrong. Other users are OK.

This is what I've tested:

  1. Site permissions are read-only.
  2. Library permissions (where the workflow operates) are read-only.
  3. Workflow Tasks list permissions are Contribute.

Have I missed anything? I've also tried assigning Full Control permissions to the above, but I still get the same issue.

I also tried opening a selection of other tasks (assigned to various other users) from the Workflow Tasks list. The vast majority had the same "access denied" issue, but a couple opened correctly (though recognised the it was the wrong user).

Thanks in advance for any suggestions on what to try next.
