MySQL Utilities does not support the use of the MYSQL_TEST_LOGIN_FILE environment variable to specify an alternate login path file name.

The documentation for mysql_config_editor specifies

To specify an alternate login path file name, set the MYSQL_TEST_LOGIN_FILE environment variable. This variable is recognized by mysql_config_editor, by standard MySQL clients (mysql, mysqladmin, and so forth), and by the mysql-test-run.pl testing utility.

How to repeat:
Create an alternate login path file using mysql_config_editor.

Try to use it with MySQL Utilities.

Suggested fix:
Add code to read the MYSQL_TEST_LOGIN_FILE environment variable.

Hello monty solomon,

Thank you for the bug report.

Until it is added or fixed the documentation for mysql_config_editor / MYSQL_TEST_LOGIN_FILE should be updated to state that it doesn't work with MySQL Utilities.
