theres a probleme regarding the delete statement on mysql 4.1.0alpha.
A delete statement including a subselect causes a permission denied for a normal user (not root).

for example:
mysql -uuser 
>delete * from table1 where id=1 
>delete * from table01 where id in(select id from table1 where id=1)
permission denied to user "user"

Same procedure for user root works fine.

How to repeat:

1. there are syntax error in provided test suite 
2. test suite is incomplete 
3. I can't repeat it with following test suite: 
drop table if exists t1,t2; 
create table t1 (id int not null); 
create table t2 (id int not null); 
insert into t1 values (1),(2),(3); 
insert into t2 values (1),(2),(3); 
grant SELECT,DELETE on test.* to test@localhost; 
connect (root,localhost,root,,test,$MASTER_MYPORT,master.sock); 
connect (user1,localhost,test,,test,$MASTER_MYPORT,master.sock); 
connection user1; 
#delete from t1 where id=2; 
delete from t1 where id in (select id from t2 where id=1); 
select * from t1; 
connection root; 
drop table t1, t2;
