      Description

      If pam_use_cleartext_plugin is configured on the server, and if you have an error in your PAM service configuration, similar to the following:

      $ cat /etc/pam.d/mariadb
      auth required pam_unix.so audit
      auth required pam_unix.so audit
      

      Then the client receives an empty error message if you try to use PAM authentication:

      $ mysql -u alice --plugin-dir=/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin
      ERROR:
