mmm -- they should be using the same encryption then, unless one
was specifically set to use OLD_PASSWORD, which is possible.

The questions was, when you enter `SELECT PASSWORD("something")`
on each system, are the results the same or different?

If different, log into MySQL and enter
mysql>   show variables like '%pass%';

See if those results differ :-)
