I've had a problem between transferring accounts between two machines on my network as part of an upgrade. Since one is older, it obviously does not have the same mysql db structure and the part of the mysqldump that does backup for the mysql db does not use the -c option and this causes when the restore happens, to not restore any mysql access rights at all. Users have data, and no permission to read them.
I'm wondering if even the mysql restore will work same-machine, but that's another issue, for another time. It's obvious at least, that I could whipe some fix for pkgacct to use mysqldump -c. But I'd rather either get cpanel to fix this(two characters shouldn't be that much of a problem) or get a way for cpanel's updates to merge with mine instead of overwrite ceaselessly.
