What is the UID *within* MySQL you are using to connect with?  Does


make things any clearer?

phpMyAdmin is clever enough to modify its user interface according to what
the user has permission to do to the database.  The user name use within the
database depends on how you've configured phpMyAdmin -- I generally like to
use 'cookie' mode authentication where the username and password are passed
straight through to MySQL from the login dialog, but the 'config' mode given
in the example config files requires you to put the username and password
directly in the phpMyAdmin configuration file.
