Can PHP use a 41 bit hash to authenticate with MySQL?

P: n/a
I'm trying to develop under the newest MySQL using PHP. Problem is that
the newer versions of MySQL use a beafier hashing algorithm. I can
reverse the hash to a 16 bit one within MySQL, but I don't want to do
this because I would then only be able to access it with older
applications. (MySQL querybrowser will not work correctly in this case)
Is it possible to get PHP to use the newer 41 bit hash when
authenticating with MySQL?? Thanks

Sounds like you've been smoking hash... I think you meant "byte", not
"bit" above. I'm using MySQL 4.1.7 and PHP 5.0.3 and the longer
passwords in mysql.user work fine without me having to change a thing,
PHP or MySQL.
