Context: mysql 4.1.13 built from source distribution, on RedHat 7.2, i586, kernel 2.4.9-13
Using mysqldump client on the above system to connect to remote server 4.1.13 (on Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 2), kernel  2.4.21-15.0.4.EL on an i686 athlon).
mysqldump shows odd connection behaviour - always reports:
  ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'hrsys.demon.co.uk' (using password: YES)
though mysql command line client (using *same* parameters in .my.cnf) connects fine.  Whilst diagnosing problem, tried:
  mysql --host=x.y.z -p
to cause password prompt.  mysqldump core dumps:
  Floating point exception (core dumped)

How to repeat:
Problem is repeatable on this system; cannot currently determine cause.  Core file is available.

Can you please try mysqldump from our binary distribution on your system and tell me if that also dumps core or not ?

Thanks !
