This means that you will insert an entry with host='%' to the MySQL
user table. The problem is that the entry 'host=localhost' and
'user='' is more specific than the above.
grant all priviliges on *.* to pthomsen@localhost identified by
'password' with grant option;
or remove the entry with user='' from the mysql.user table.
