SHOW DATABASES works in 4.0.14

Hi,

I've been trying to solve this problem for a long time. Only thing
I did when upgrading from 3.25 to 4.0.14 I took the default my.cnf. I
did not convert the privilege tables with mysql_fix_privi lege_tables.

Suddenly, the mysql started to show all databases to all users (even
though the user had access denied and could not do show tables on
them). So I started to find help and tried the
mysql_fix_privi lege_tables. It didn't work properly (more than just
access denied and errors, that are ok) so I did the changes manually
conforming to source code of mysql_fix_privi lege tables.

PhpMyAdmin stopped its warning about privilege tables not conforming
to current mysql version. Everything seemed ok except that SHOW
DATABASES still worked.

The users naturally all have Show_db_priv="N " in the tables. Also
trying "safe_show_data base", "skip_show_data base" in my.cnf and
"--skip-show-database" witch mysqld didn't help.

All *.frm files in mysql database have the same md5 as those generated
by scripts/mysql_install_d b.

Thanks for help,

Hi everyone.
