Useful data points, and as expected.

The best current understanding of the root cause is that
this is a mysql (not mariadb) client library issue (and
is independent of which server type (mysql or mariadb)
one uses) and was introduced into the mysql client library
with the 8.0.24 version, and ubuntu made available the
8.0.25 version to replace their 8.0.23 version a bit more
than ten days ago which is when the problem was first
experienced.  While one can override various defaults
on platforms, I think pretty much only ubuntu (of the more
well known distributions) uses the mysql client library
(rather than the mariadb client library) as the default for
new(er) installs.
