Administrator has locked himself out

In an Odoo installation we have an administrator who wanted to test what the specfic permission levels to the settings app would give access to. By mistake the administrator set the wrong permission for the settings app so that he does no longer have access to this. This user account is the only administrator in this odoo instance.

Is there a way to either set the correct permission from the commandline or create a new administrator from the commandline, so that we can fix this issue.

Obviously there is missing some validation in Odoo, so that the first administrator created, when creating the database, cannot be locked out like this.

You execute this PostgreSQL command:

INSERT INTO res_groups_users_rel (gid, uid) SELECT id, 1 FROM res_groups where name = 'Settings';
