The above problem shouldn't have anything to do with libc/glibc.
It only means that you have set a password for root. Check the
entries in your mysql.users table or use mysqlaccess to check what is
In the second case you are NOT login in as root, but as
'root@localhost@localhost' which probably defaults to anonymous login.
