[Pdns-dev] gmysql backend rejects non-alpha pw chars

Found a minor problem with the gmysql backend.
Wondering if anyone has ideas for a workaround.
The password policy here is to include non-alpha
characters in passwords. For example:
However, even though that's a valid MySQL password,
and the mysql command like utility has no issues
with it, PowerDNS's gmysql backend refuses to use it.
Errors out with:
gmysql Connection failed: Unable to connect to database: Access denied for user 'pdns'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
Removing the non-alpha chars like this allows things
But, that's not compliant with strong password
Thinking the problem may be escaping related, tried
Still no go. Anyone have ideas?
Regards and best wishes,
