        Thanks for reporting this issue Ray,

        I don't think this is a bug, but a functionality.
        You have to put some value for custom profile field before you can view this as admin.

        1. Login as admin.
        2. Create user profile field (Myprofile) and set visibility to "Not visible"
        3. View any user profile
        4. Edit this user profile and enter some value for Myprofile field
        5. View profile again and Myprofile field should now be visible.
