Please avoid SHOW GRANTS. It's a little buggy in early 4.0 / 3.23
And the big problem is that we have to know the correct Hostname as it
appears in the user table.
e.g. if user foo at 192.168.0.% logs on from we would
intentionally build this query:
Unfortunally, this query would fail.
The only way to determine a user's privileges properly is to use the
`mysql` database. We should use the controluser for this purpose.
