Moving to the archived list where people are subscribed to talk about 
dev issues, rather than some hard-to-find, impossible-to-search comments 
stuck in github...

If DB port is set to anything other than 0 and the database host name is 
localhost, we presume that the user--for some reason--wants to try a 
TCP/IP connection to localhost, so we change the database host name to  MySQL treats the localhost hostname specially and uses a 
socket connection, rather than a TCP/IP connection.  I'm guessing you 
haven't granted permissions allowing such a connection.
