Hi Tristan, in fact this looks like a cpanel issue in the mysql version update process.....we have upgraded from 5.0 to 5.1 recentrly and we have a mysql backup script doing mysqldump every day, did start erroring with that message....wasnt happening with 5.0. Looks like after the update root do not have the right to lock tables. so basically you have turn on unprivileged mode grant to root the permission and then turn off unprivileged mode. Wondering if you have any fix for this, dealing with mysql permissions by hand is a bit risky. Thanx!
