If a user password has been updated to use the new 4.1 password challenge, MySQL CC can't authenticate.

How to repeat:
Update a user's password (eg set password = password('abc') )
Try to connect with MySQL CC
Response : ERROR 1249: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server. Consider upgrading MySQL client

Suggested fix:
Upgrade to use new password challenge method

Authentication works when MySQL CC is compiled from source with the 4.1 client libraries

It is a good idea compile and replace on the download area MySqlCC for Windows "compiled with a 4.1 library".
It is hardly to complie something under Windows.

This will be fixed as soon as 4.1 is reaches a more mature stage.
