Why would the Add Value button be grayed out for a tool parameter?

Any guesses as to why the "Add Value" button would be grayed out for a parameter so that you could not enter a parameter, but it is a required parameter so you have to have it to run the tool?  (It is just a string).


Update: There appears to be a bug where it cannot handle entry of multivalue strings.  If you turn off multivalue, you can enter a value, but then it does not work because it is supposed to be multivalue so it can populate a Python dictionary object. 

At 10.0, one did not have to run the tool from the Desktop, only browse to it to create a geoprocessing service from it and it worked fine.  Now one apparently has to run all of their server based tools from the Desktop just to be able to create a Geoprocessing Service from them as far as I can tell.

This would make sense if it was a derived parameter but it is not.  To workaround it, I set a default value since I could not enter one in the tool and it will not be run from the desktop anyway.
