Subject: glitch in upgrade myth to 0.25.2-dmo2
In a Debian testing chroot I just upgraded myth 0.25.2 from dmo1 to
dmo2, along with other upgrades.

During the upgrade aptitude popped up a dialog asking what user I should
use to administer myth on mysql (roughly--it's from memory). "root" was
filled in as the response, with a recommendation to accept it. I did.

I was surprised to see the dialogue, since I had already configured myth
and this is a minor upgrade--just a change in compression, according to
the changelog.

Later, the terminal showed

Failed to connect to database: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) at -e line 5, <> line 1.
dpkg: error processing mythtv-database (--configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 255

There were a few more failed to connect messages in the logs, and at the
dpkg: error processing mythtv (--configure):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

Despite this, myth seems to be running fine.

I did fiddle around with account names and passwords, although my notes
do not show any indication that I rejected the default "root" response

Any ideas how to make the install go all the way through? Is there any
upgrade code I'm likely to need to execute?
