I am writing a multi-threaded client that requires shared access to a single MySQL
connection. The environment is Redhat 7.3 with the patched mysql-3.23.58-2.71.i386.rpm
installed and compiled with -l libmysqlclient_r.
The connection is made from the main thread and a MYSQL_RES* myres declared from the child
thread is used to fetch results back to the thread. I get a Segmentation fault the first
instance my child thread (only one) accesses MYSQL_RES through mysql_num_rows(myres).
(gdb informed me that this is due to mysql_num_rows from libmysqlclient_r.so.10)
I have read a few docs about writing MySQL multi-threaded clients and have called
my_init() in my main prog and my_thread_init() at the first line of my thread handler.
