Active Directory user permissions

We are running the latest version of mysql server CE on a RedHat machine.
In another windows 7 machine, we have the latest mysql workbench.
All of our authentication methods are mysql based.
When I test one of the users connection settings under a windows 7 workbench client, it all go smooth with a "connection parameters are correct" message, but when I try to open the connection to start querying I get this error message:

"Your connection attempt failed for user 'xxx' from your host to server at xxx:3306:
Could not open database"

If I change the user permissions in active directory, granting him domain administrator priviledges, the connection then opens with no problem at all.

What does AD permissions have to do with user authentication in workbench?
Maybe it's a system folder or file write permissions?

Thank you very much
