Various questions about 10.1.26-MariaDB on CYGWIN_NT-10.0 2.9.0(0.318/5/3) 2017-09-12 10:18 x86_64 Cygwin

----- Background:

After much trial and error, I installed MariaDB and its mysql client
on the latest Cygwin.

$ mysql_install_db
$ cd '/usr' ; /usr/bin/mysqld_safe --datadir='/var/lib/mysql'
$ mysql
$ mysql -u root -p

Created a 'keithdb' database as the MySQL/MariaDB 'root' user

Also created a 'keith' user and want to add "full" permission TO the
'keithdb' database for this new 'keith' user.

I've tried all of the following grant commands below and none of them
work.  I'm obviously missing something here.  I see that the grant
syntax has changed from older MySQL to MariaDB;

----- Question 1: Could someone help me with the GRANT syntax for
MariaDB 10.1.26?  Even the web pages for MariaDB did not work, so I
must have a fundamental problem.
     1  show grants;
     2  GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON keithdb TO 'keith'@'localhost' WITH
     3  GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON 'keithdb 'to 'keith'@'localhost' WITH
     4  GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON 'keithdb' TO 'keith'@'localhost' WITH
     5  GRANT ALL ON 'keithdb' TO 'keith'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;
     6  GRANT ALL ON keithdb TO 'keith'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;
     7  GRANT ALL ON database keithdb TO 'keith'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;
     8  GRANT ALL 'keith'@'localhost' ON keithdb WITH GRANT OPTION;

----- Question 2:  Why does the login below show "Current user:"
keith@localhost@localhost?  Seems that is should be only
$ mysql -u 'keith'@'localhost'

----- Question 3:  How can I get GNU readline back as the editor for
the mysql client?
Someone else asked this question but the answer appeared difficult.

Thanks for your time and suggestions, Cygwin list folks.
