Heh.  Nope.  If you use grant, revoke or set password you don't have to
use flush privileges.  I won't bore you with a shameless plug for MySQL
Bible.  :)  I'll cite the MySQL documentation, section 4.3 "When Privilege
Changes Take Effect"

"Modifications to the grant tables that you perform using GRANT, REVOKE, 
or SET PASSWORD are noticed by the server immediately."


If you're seeing issues when using grant, revoke, or set password with 
changes not taking effect then that's something we should be dealing with 
on a MySQL mailing list because it indicates something else is broken.
