This is a somewhat obscure use-case but it appears that the Members plugin throws errors is it is deployed to a new site without an tables it tried to insert 'members_db_version' key into wp_options before wp_options exists.
Adding the following code at the top of /members/includes/update.php solves the problem:
if ( defined( 'WP_INSTALLING' ) && WP_INSTALLING )
I can work around it by putting the code into my must-use plugin loader, but I thought you might want to know.
Cool. As an aside, just met with someone today building a web app on top of WordPress. They are researching different commercial plugins; I told him “You don’t need those, they’ll just cause you heartache. Get Members and add the business rules exactly as you need them; it’s actually quite simple.” His users are few and he has a face-to-face relationship with each so he doesn’t need the online credit card processing that commercial membership plugins provide.
