Change Ib6b05d2d7e8ebb4438d3b0051c33d367f41a9957 fixed the problem where the installer gave an incorrectly-worded error if someone blanked out the user field for the administrative username for the database. But in the process it started producing bogus messages of one left the password for that administrative user blank. If the administrative username is the default (root) and the password is the default (empty), I get this warning:
"Please enter a password for the new database user: root. While it may be possible to create users with no passwords, it is not secure."
But I am not asking it *create* a *new* user at this time, I am asking it to connect as an existing administrative user so that it can use it to create a new database and a new user.
As far as I can tell, this change is accidental, as the commit message says nothing about passwords.
