If I correctly understand the MySQL privilege structure, what you're
referring to is
a situation where a user would be allowed to change privileges but
can't see the list
of other users. Obviously, that makes it difficult to provide a GUI
for those users :)

If I'm correct, there's no way to deal with this. The best I think we
can do is provide
some text ("You have the GRANT_OPTION privilege but not SELECT on the mysql
database. We are unable to show the list of users, but you can still
write SQL directly."
with a link to the MySQL documentation, perhaps). That's the best idea
I can come up
with off hand.

Of course, I've been interrupted five times writing these two
paragraphs, so I may be
answering a completely different question at this point...
