In the agent log with 3.0.13 against a server running 5.1.59.
The agent has a general and a limited user, maybe it's using the wrong user?

2014-08-15 11:09:00,838  WARN com.mysql.etools.agent.collection.MysqlConnection: JDBC operation against failed due to StatementCallback; bad SQL grammar [SHOW BINARY LOGS]; nested exception is com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.MySQLSyntaxErrorException: Access denied; you need the SUPER privilege for this operation. Will not retry (operation was not retry-able or no retries are left)

How to repeat:
See agent log.

Also happens with 3.0.14 and 5.1.49

Verified. Needs SUPER privilege 5.1.63 and prior (see the manual). Workaround upgrade to 5.1.65.
