GOTCHYA: CQ5/AEM Could not start workflow

The Problem

You are logged in as a non-admin user, and when you try to initiate a workflow, you get a popup message stating "Could not start workflow".

The Solution

Your user probably is not added to the workflow-users group, which grants permission to initiate workflows. Add the user or the user's group to the workflow-users group, and your problem is solved.
