For some reason I can't see the databases that I have access to when I run the "show databases" command. This only occurs when I have grants through a role, when I give a user direct permissions to the database I can see it (yes my current_role is set properly as this example indicates).
It could be a bug. If you can create a complete repeatable test case, please post it at jira.mariadb.org
