MySQL's permissions system it's fairly complex, allowing fine-grained
access control. One of the things it cares about is the host you're
connecting *from*, which from the server's perspective is different with
the tunnel. The MySQL debug log might have more information about what
it didn't like.
I also see that you're changing two variables here at the same time: the
host name and the port. Change just one at a time to isolate the
difference. There should be no functional difference between 0 and
"127.0.0.1", so report it as a bug if there is, but until you try it
with both port options, you don't know, you're guessing.
