When a password is changed it updates the MySQL
database accordingly. However, MySQL requires a
special "flush privileges" command to be invoked for the
changes to apply. See the MySQL documentation
section 4.4.3:

manual_MySQL_Database_Administration.html#Privilege_c

The attached patch forces the "flush privileges"
command after a successful password change.

    pam_mysql don't use the MySQL privileges but plain tables
    instead.

    To correct the previous comment, pam_mysql can use any
    MySQL table. However, by default it queries and updates
    the "user" table, which controls MySQL authentication. In
    that case, the "flush privileges" command, and therefore this
    patch, is useful.
