Hi Noah

1) Is the machine your cgi script is running on?
If not, change it.

2) Does the user which want's to GRANT have Grant_priv from the host running the cgi
script on?
If not, give him this priviledge.

If it is none of the above, mail us your priviledge tables, so we can have a closer look
at it.
