Actually, the debian-sys-maint user is, afaik, only meant for
mysql-package internal use. The correct way to do things would
probably be to ask for the root PW and then to create a non-root user
which is used from there on.

Having a non-root user btw breaks all updates of the otrs package
since the maintainer scripts barf if they cannot connect as root.
