got this error:

Isn't this a mysql bug?

Or does it work with the mysql tool?

I tried to do it with another mysql user with another password and that worked,
copied that user into a new one with the old password & tried it with a new password: login: pdns pass: pdns# and thatone also didn't work.

I flushed the user privileges, but that did not change anything.
after that i changed the password for user pdns and it works like a charm.
