I assume you want to do

mysql -u root -pxxxxxxx
(note that there is _no_ space between -p and the password)

This is a requirement made by the function which parses the command
line (since the password value to -p is optional and there is no way
of knowing if you wanted to give a database name or a password, if
there is a space in between).

This is explained somewhere in the Manual, I guess (since I know it :-),
but I don't have access to it atm, so I cannot search the section.
