Available since 0.6.0. Works pretty good now in 0.7.2.

I'm currently using specialized FBExport and FBCopy tools for this. We might
or might not integrate those with FlameRobin in future.

Happens to me too. However, I'm unable to reproduce it consistently, so it
hard to fix when you don't know what the exact problem is. I plan to look
into this one soon.

Is that with version 0.7.2? Does it happen for any privileges?

Perhaps you should join our mailing list. Before making it, we tried to
discuss what people would want from the "Grant management", but we didn't get
much comments or opinions on it. So we created what we though best.

Overall impression of most FR developers is that user feedback could be much
improved. We see thousands of downloads for each release, but very few
comments. We are aware of some problems, but some others can't be fixed if we
don't know about them. So, everyone, if you have problem with FR, please let
us know. If you don't want to subscribe to mailing list, you can e-mail me

Not really. Please join our (low traffic) development list:
