SQLException:sql.catalog:ALTER USER: no such user '�'

i.e. garbage, it should see the current user instead.

Changeset 0f9f5c7b727c made by Fabian Groffen in the MonetDB repo, refers to this bug.

For complete details, see http//devmonetdborg/hg/MonetDB?cmd=changeset;node=0f9f5c7b727c

Changeset description:

sql_alter_user: recognise str_nil as NULL

After ALTER USER statements have been made to go through a MAL program,
the user argument no longer would be NULL, but nil:str.  As such, the
current user (== NULL) was no longer found, making it impossible to
change the password for the administrator (== monetdb) password.
Accept str_nil as alternative for NULL, fixes bug #2844.
