mysql_install_db.sh installs an unqualified hostname into the mysql access
list. However the mysql commands use the fully qualified hostname for
authentication. As a result the instructions in mysql-server/MESSAGE fail.
Has anyone else run into this?
It would be better if mysql_install_db.sh installed a fully qualified
hostname in the access list. Although it could work to just install
a wildcard like 'hostname%'.
