I was using phpmyadmin with different user
account and discovered that while phpmyadmin
doesn't list the tables on the left frame for
restricted databases (which is good) when you
click on the database, it gives a confusing error
that no tables are found...which is not really
correct (also giving a mysql error output) it
should say that the user is restricted to use the
database...This might be more of an idea, but
here is a patch to correct this.  Build on it.
