Fix of Bug #44922 allowed arguments to mtr command to be protected in quotes (' " or `).  But in some rare cases, a test would have '' or "" as an argument to be interpreted literally, now this becomes an empty string.

How to repeat:
./mtr funcs_1.processlist_priv_no_prot

Suggested fix:
Arguments that include enclosing quotes now have to be protected by another type of quote, in this case '' in a connect command is replaced with "''".

What differs if you write it like this "(anonymous1,localhost,,,information_schema);" ? Just curious.

Pushed to 5.1-mtr.

To answer last comment: what happens is apparently that you connect using an empty tring rather than a string consisting of '' for the user name, resulting in, in this case, the user being set to your user name.
