Some ideas: Make sure that the hostspec you are using if you are  
explicitly specifying it in passwd's backends.local.php file matches  
the host that the dbuser was granted access to. I.e., 'localhost',  
'' may not be viewed as the same host from the rdms' point of  

Also, if you are using a SQL based auth, you might try using the  
hordeauth backend in passwd.
