Hi!

If you are using mysql_init() to alloc the MYSQL structure,
mysql_close() should deallocate everything.

If anyone can prove otherwise, please mail any complete test program
directly to me and I will fix this at once!

Monty

PS:  Note that MySQL 3.21 doesn't have mysql_init();  In MySQL 3.21
     one should instead call mysql_connect() or mysql_real_connect()
     with NULL as the first argument.  This also works in MySQL 3.22,
     even if mysql_init() is the preferred way to do this!
