As I understand it, confirmed here, MySQL interprets "localhost" and
"127.0.0.1" differently; the former uses Unix sockets if available where
the latter uses TCP/IP.
That ought not affect the privileges, as far as I know, but it might
have some bearing that I can't think of?
Also, what does /etc/hosts have for 127.0.0.1? Some distros used to have
localhost.localdomain rather than localhost, and changing them to
localhost has been known to assist
