command line just prints the Help

Hello, nuB problem...

I connect from a Windows command line ...mysql\bin>mysql myuser mypass
and all that ever gets displayed is this help text :

Usage: [OPTIONS][database]
....
....
....
Variables
....
....
....

there's no >mysql prompt after that, it's only mysql\bin>

So then I reconnect and try adding options or queries but it always
does the same thing. I can query from php scripts at http://localhost
but the the command line.

Any idea what's going on?
