the first 3 bytes of the response from server to client is the length
of the mysql packet, however from my own investigations (mysql 5.0.37
with innodb) the response packet to any query ("select ...") is always
hex "01 00 00" regardless of the length of the mysql response packet.
some executions (like "use <database>" or "set autocommit=0") do get
mysql to return a legitimate length ("07 00 00") however any query i
execute where i expect data rows to be returned the length is never
anyone know what the problem is?
