Start mysqld with --old-protocol and then check your mysql.user table;

You have some old passwords left that are coded with only 8
characters!  When you have changed the password for these users, you
can then restart mysqld without --old-protocol.

The major 'flaw' when running with --old-protocol is that your clients
can't get the error number for your error messages.
