Hmmmmm. That sounds like there's a record in the mysql.user table that gets precedence,
somehow... Normally, if multiple entries match a user/host combination, the most specific
one gets used, which makes it kind of unlikely; but would you mind posting the full set of
user/host combinations in mysql.user (don't need the password hashes, of course) and a few
of the errors you get (those show the exact user@host the server tries to match) ?
It's a bit of a long shot, but anything is worth checking out at this point.
