Problem reading my.cnf


I have just upgraded mysql server version from 4.0.13 to 4.0.14, from
FreeBSD 5.1 ports collection.
Before upgrade mysql command line client could read password from
/etc/my.cnf file and I could use mysql without supplying -p option.
But after upgrade it could read password only up to # sign. For instance in
/etc/my.cnf file:

password = test#istest$
port = 3306
socket = /tmp/mysql.sock

When I issue command mysql --print-defaults it prints:

mysql would have been started with the following arguments:
--password=test --port=3306 --socket=/tmp/mysql.sock --no-auto-rehash
Is this a bug of mysql command line client or it is something different?
Is there anybody who solved this already?

thanks in advance,
