Replies inline, have edited the messages a little, to put similar
issues together.  Sorry for messing up the order.

>> On top of the query dialog, which shows the correct 'create user'
>> statements, there is a very small message (with the warning icon) but
>> it doesn't seem to contain a message.
> This very small message is caused by:
> <div class="notice"></div>
Fixed.  Caused due to a modification made to PMA_showMessage() for
Ajax requests.

> For me, testing with FF 3.6.6 on Windows Vista, even after clicking on

Tested on FF 3.6.6 and 3.6.3.  Newly created user is visible in the
list retrieved on clicking the first user.  Could we be having caching
issues?  It works when I take the following steps:
- Open Privileges page
- Add New User
- Click on first letter that contains the user name of the new user.

It seems to fail when the following steps are taken:
- Open Privileges page
- Paginate the list of users, clicking on the same alphabet that would
be the beginning of the new username
- Add New User
- Again paginate the list of users and show the same alphabet

Will a simple call to Math.random() be sufficient to add an extra
GET/POST variable parameter that would not return the cached user's
list?  I don't remember seeing any function in the js/ folder that
would generate a random string that I could use here.

Both require that I add to the table that already exists.  I'm working
on it and will be committed to the repository in a few hours.

jQuery dialogs will submit that form when we click on one of the
buttons.  I'm trying to figure out if I can trigger the same event by
hooking up the same functions on the form's submit event.

Should be fixed now.  I've just pushed the changes, should take a
little while to refresh on the demo server.

>> Comments on adding a table to a database :

That is one of the issues I was thinking about, but jQueryUI added the
scrollbar automatically when I tested it.  Hence, I didn't think too
much about it.  Maybe, if we could highlight the scrollbar in some
way, the user might not feel lost.

The dialog stays there till the request completes successfully.  The
error handling seems to be faulty, or it would have shown an error
message in case there was one.  I'll fix it.

> Also, when creating a table and asking to add a column, I see
> "processing request" but the column is not added to the dialog.
When the form's content is retrieved with the new number of columns,
it is simply inserted in place of the previous form.  I guess we
should show an alert that the form has been updated.  I'll add an Ajax
notification at the end of the request.
