And when I re-install (having removed the datadir manually) and do specify the
password when asked, I first get a dialog box saying

Unable to set password for the MySQL "root" user
An error occurred while setting the password for the MySQL administrative user. This may have happened because the
account already has a password, or because of a communication problem with the MySQL server.
You should check the account's password after the package installation.

Please read the /usr/share/doc/mariadb-server-5.1/README.Debian file for more information.

and then this output:
