Remove manually (delete) the user from all the privilege tables:
delete from columns_priv where user='carlos';
delete from db where user='carlos';
delete from procs_priv where user='carlos';
delete from tables_priv where user='carlos';
delete from user where user='carlos';
then a nice FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
this should fix, let me know!
