Can't connect from localhost with 4.1.1 alpha

I can connect from SQLYog,MySqlCC,jdbc from remote with no problem.
However, when I try to connect(mysql -u root) from localhost, then I
get access denied. Checked the user table and root can connect from
anywhere(%).

I am running 4.1.1 alpha on Red Hat with the --old-password option.
TIA.

Resolve: mysql -u root -proot

What happened to asking for a password?? and why no space after -p;
Come on, let's get the easy default stuff straight before worrying
about subselects and the like.
