My first guess would be that the authentication has failed and that the
underlying stream is nil.

The MySQL test is ran on the travis-ci build and it passed the last time[1].
So in some configuration it works with master as well.

It is a good assumption. make install should install everything and the MySQL
package should not accidentally pull in old things.
