Hi Keith,

no doubt - a real annoying bug.
I found two solutions on the web.

First, by ‘Insane_Edna’ in the rails forum:
Copy libmysql.dll from mysql\bin to ruby\bin
(don’t know whether that works on linux / os x the same way with the
mysql lib)

I can say it worked for me (Win XP) for one project and failed on

Second, works on all platforms but it’s definitly NOT best practice

Generate a mysql account with a user without password and update your
with it.
Solution 2 always worked fine but I’m not gonna use it in the production

Hope that helps for the moment. I think we’re in a growing crowd of
people looking forward for a real solution. (updated mysql bindings or
whatever )
