I thought what it printed when you created the connection would be

The connection string used for Z MySQL Database Connection is of the form: 

       database[@host[:port]] [user [password [unix_socket]]]

or typically: 

       database user password

to use a MySQL server on localhost via the standard UNIX socket. Only
specify host if the server is on a remote system. You can use a
non-standard port, if necessary. If the UNIX socket is in a non-standard
location, you can specify the full path to it after the password.

...so you want something like: db@pit peter-hauser test3-.2
If pit is the local host: db peter-hauser test3-.2
...will be faster and use the standard UNIX socket.

You do not necessarily need a UNIX user by that name. Your GRANT statement
looks basically correct, but check the MySQL documentation.
