[facebook idiot filter] I can't tag myself in my own photos?! Help!!

I can't believe I'm asking a question about Facebook, but this is really starting to bug me. I created a photo album on Facebook with some of my wedding photos. For some reason, I cannot tag myself in the photos. Technically, I suppose, I can. I can get my name to appear when you hover over me. But the photos won't show up in "photos of me", that stream with all the (obviously) photos of me.
I've tried everything I can think of. I tried to tag myself originally when I uploaded with the face recognition thing. I've tried tagging the photos while viewing the album. I've tried tagging the photos in the "edit album" mode (that actually results in a "your tags were unable to be saved at this time" error, and it discards all the tags of myself. I've even tried having my husband tag me from his account. Nothin'.
If it makes any difference I did that developer hack to get Timeline early, and I swear it's been a little buggy ever since. Is there perhaps some way I can temporarily un-Timeline and fix my photos (if that is even the problem)?
So, yeah. It's a pretty silly question. How the eff do I tag myself in my wedding photos so they show up in my "photos of me" stream? Clearly this is not the end of the world or anything, but I would kind of like my wedding to be as immortalized in on my profile in some small way.
