Capturing unknown MySql password

Odd situation. I have a big, complex app that is trying to log an internal virtual user into a MySQL server that I control (I have root access). It's difficult to change the manner in which it's trying to do this. Authentication fails each time, apparently because it's using the wrong password for its identity. But from inside that app I so far haven't been able to figure out what password it's TRYING to use. I need some way to set the matching password for that user in mysql, and I'm wondering if there's some way to see the password it's attempting to use so that I can make it match, or other suggested solutions for this. Thanks very much!
