Summary:

After installing a component the CurrentUser object is not refreshed so if a new field on the user object is created and populated with information by the component, that information won't be available by any client side script until the user logs off and logs back in again.

For more information about the CurrentUser object see the following article: https://community.sagecrm.com/partner_community/b/hints_tips_and_tricks/archive/2011/09/02/the-client-side-currentuser-object.aspx

Resolution:

This has been fixed in 7.2F Hotfix 2.
