Sorry, I don't know the answer to this one;  Try doing a MyODBC trace
file (or start mysqld with --log) and check what commands Access sends 
to the MySQL server;  There is always the possibility the Access
doesn't send MySQL the information about the index!

Same answer as above;  You must find out what statemens Access is
sending to MySQL to know what is going wrong.

I don't think so (this is an Access problem)
