What is the authentication method used for the active mysql user account ?
Give me the SHOW CRATE USER (sans the sensitive bits of course) for that user.
Some methods require a secure connection (a unix socket, a SSL connection or a named pipe iirc, i.e. the one that are guaranteed not to allow eavesdropping).

Obviously you're using one of these, but over an ssh channel. And since the mysql client can't detect it's running on one such channel (for it it's just another tcp/ip port) you get the error and you need to turn the override on.
