The following code from php_mysql.c trashes the default_password,
obtained from the php.ini file.

passwd = MySG(default_password);
case 3: {

user = Z_STRVAL_PP(z_user);
passwd = Z_STRVAL_PP(z_passwd);

Reproduce code:
Set the mysql default password in the php.ini file and call mysql connect as follows:

mysql(foo, bar, null, TRUE);

Expected result:
passwd should not be set if argument is null.

Actual result:
Empty password is send to mysql.
