Thanks very much!  It was the ShowConfigTab permission that did it.  I
had a feeling there was another access they needed in order to be able
to get to the place where they could modify the custom fields' values.

I found ShowConfigTab under Configuration, Global, Group Rights.

BTW, the other permission is called ModifyCustomField -- apparently it
was earlier called ModifyObjectCustomFieldValues, but then shortened.
