Access denied, simple task

What works for me with mysql 3.23.49 of Debian GNU/Linux (Woody),
does not any more with mysql 3.23.56 of fink (current-stable,
for fink cf. fink.sf.net) - I am not sure, if this problem is caused
by the mysql version (some security changes between .49 and .56)
or by the fink configuration - I might ask at the fink-users list

I am trying to create a database and a mysql user with privileges to
use it - a rather simple thing to do (my knowledge is mostly from Paul
Du Bois' books: "MySQL" and "MySQL Recipes")

I start creating the database as the mysql root user

$ mysqladmin -u root -p*** create myFineDb

Next, I create the user and give him privileges to use
myFineDb (again as the mysql root user)

$ mysql -u root -p***
mysql> grant all on myFineDb.* to abc@localhost identified by "abcpass";
mysql> ^D (to leave mysql)

(So far no problems, now comes the thing:)

$ mysql -u abc -pabcpass myFineDb

Works fine in Debian (.49) but not in fink (.56):

[mac:~] reuleaux% mysql -u abc -pabcpass myFineDb
ERROR 1044: Access denied for user: 'abc@localhost' to database 'myfinedb'
[mac:~] reuleaux%

If I look closer at the problem I see that I can at least log in
but not use the database:

[mac:~] reuleaux% mysql -u abc -pabcpass
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 24 to server version: 3.23.56

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql> use myFineDb;
ERROR 1044: Access denied for user: 'abc@localhost' to database 'myfinedb'

I have tried variations of the upper grant command with no succes either:

...to 'abc'@'localhost' ...

Any help is appreciated.
