I just ran into an update issue moving to ThinkUp 2-Beta. The DB update failed on lacking the alter privilege. I blame this partly on myself, but I don't recall seeing in the setup instructions the necessary privileges for the DB user. I don't think this is a bug per-se, but it may be beneficial to have the app check for appropriate privileges to ensure that it's capable of executing the SQL.

Granted, it is a limited scope feature. You really only setup the DB user once - In my case I made the change and everything went fine.
