Why can't I create a subtask?

I seem to be unable to create a subtask in a project where I can in other projects.  The documentation states:

To create sub-tasks, you need to have the Create Issue permission in the parent issue's project.

It seems that the default permission scheme is assigned to this project and has the "users" group  assigned to this permission.  I am in the "users" group.  I'm wondering why I can't create a sub-task?

Sub-tasks can only be created if your JIRA administrator has enabled sub-tasks and added the sub-task issue type to the project's issue type scheme.

Yes, sub-tasks were enabled for the project and sub-tasks are added to the issue type scheme.

Check your permission, I think you need a developer role for this project.
