Hehehe, I just had this one.  It seems that when you
connect to mysql via you use a TCP port, and
when you use localhost you use a socket.  The socket
is faster and preferred, thus default.  It seems that
a config file of yours has 127... in it.  

The quick and dirty way is to add the grant statement
for snort at ...7737..., but unless you have a specific
reason to use the 127 addy (my reason was using
stunnel) I would find that reference to it and change
it to 'localhost'.

If you give a man a fish, he can eat for a day
If you bludgeon him to death, you can eat the fish yourself
