The trick you;re counting on leaves your databases wide open to invasion:

"Passwords in statements written to the general query log are rewritten by the server not to occur literally in plain text. Password rewriting can be suppressed for the general query log by starting the server with the --log-raw option. This option may be useful for diagnostic purposes, to see the exact text of statements as received by the server, but for security reasons is not recommended for production use. See also Section 6.1.2.3, “Passwords and Logging”.

You need to turn off the setting that allowed you to do this.
