Have you tried logging in with the mysql client?

Thank you very very very much for replying.

Yes, I can login with mysql client. I can even login using webmmin.

Here is another strange thing. Once I have logged in using mysql client 
then everything works again. I do not have to restart MySQL. This is 
very very strange. What could be the problem?

There is no error in the error log file.

Is there any other place I have to look at?

Please do continue to help.
