I've been reading the thread about SHOW DATABASES and SHOW TABLES
returning lists of blank entries or no results. Just out of curiosity,
I upgraded my RedHat 6.2 machine from MySQL 3.23.32 to MySQL 3.23.33
and found that suddenly I had the problem too! However, then I remembered
that I'd upgraded glibc in the meantime to deal with some other RPMs
I installed that required a newer glibc. So I went back and recompiled
3.23.32 and installed it. Guess what? I still have the problem.
glibc and glibc-common versions are 2.2-12 if that's relevant. Based on
the preceding information, I'd guess it's not a MySQL problem per se.
