We found it at last. In the User table the Host field may not be the
hostname of my machine but its IP address (strange since our DNS is OK -
ping and other tools can work with hostnames without problems). Now the
MyODBC works as expected.

Thanks for all answers and sorry I didn't RTFM first but I was curious about
the '%-.64s' report. If it reported "Host 'joy' is not allowed" from the
beginning we would probably started to experiment with privileges settings
but that error report misleaded us.

Thanks again.
