I'm installing mysqlmonitoragent- . It asks me to provide information about the to be monitored database server.

I leave MySQL password empty. The installer bails:

  "You need to provide a password containing only ascii characters" 

Wouldn't it be much nicer if the installer told me what has been decided in bug 52931 (no empty password allowed). Please make it say something along the lines:

  "Empty passwords are not supported for security reasons."

This is also what has been requested as part of bug #52931:

Andy, there are two parts to this bug:

#1 No blank passwords allowed; addressed by your comment.
#2 Incorrect "ascii characters only" dialog box; not addressed.

How to repeat:
Install the agent, leave MySQL password empty
