When trying to install percona-agent-1.0.4-x86_64 I’m receiving the error
Testing MySQL connection monitor_user:…@unix(/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock)…
Error connecting to MySQL monitor_user:…@unix(/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock):
Failed to connect to MySQL after 1 tries
(This server only supports the insecure old password authentication.
If you still want to use it, please add ‘allowOldPasswords=1’ to your DSN.

Connecting via TCP host & port produces the same error.
The percona-agent-installer application has the command-line option -old-passwords
#./bin/percona-agent-installer -debug=true -old-passwords=true
produces the same error.
How do I get the Percona Agent to connect to a server with the variable old_passwords set to ON ?
