I just installed ruby on rails on my windows laptop (so I can code on
the
road dontcha know), I normally use my gentoo box for this, but since
moving
things to the window box, I get this error when I try to run my
application:


Mysql::Error: Lost connection to MySQL server during query:
#############################

And for the life of me can't figure out why, it works just dandy on my
linux box, and I think I have my sql permissions

setup correctly.  At least, I can connect to the server from my laptop
just fine.  I noticed that this problem was
addressed somewhat here:
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Mysql+Conn...

But it doesn't mention anything about fixing it on windows.  Does
anyone know anything about this?
