Description:
When in the you-must-change-your-password-sandbox the server side help function is not available.

How to repeat:
mysql> show slave status\G
ERROR 1820 (HY000): You must reset your password using ALTER USER statement before executing this statement.
mysql> help ALTER USER
ERROR 1820 (HY000): You must reset your password using ALTER USER statement before executing this statement.

Suggested fix:
Allow 'HELP ALTER USER' (or any HELP) while in sandbox mode.

Or add this to the error message:
ALTER USER USER() IDENTIFIED BY '<password>'
