It's not immediately obvious that this is the reason why you can't move the bone.

use_connect is a python API parameter that specifies if a bone is locked to it's parent.

pose.bones.bone.bone.use_connect
data.bones.bone.use_connect
data.editbones.bone..use_connect

I guess this was somehow set through Python, since clearing the parent in the user interface clears connected.
