I solved my own problem.

I had originally installed MySQL using Homebrew. Along the way I inadvertently upgraded MySQL when I confused brew update with brew upgrade. Apparently, brew upgrade will upgrade everything the was ever installed using brew. This is not what I wanted, but it is what I got.

It seems the Homebrew upgrade does nothing for the datastore (tables). After rummaging around the net I discovered I needed to run

$> mysql_upgrade -u root

to perform further modifications. I did that, bounced the instance, and the error went away.
