it is in the TODO to implement a real VARCHAR to MySQL. That fix may also
fix the annoying problem that MySQL removes trailing characters ASCII(32)
from the end of all strings, including a BINARY string. It is really
counterintuitive, I agree.
It does not hurt to report this as a bug at bugs.mysql.com. It could speed
up the fixing of this problem.
