Most likely the client would crash.  You aren't passing a bad pointer to the
server, you're passing a bad pointer to libmysqlclient, which will probably
crash trying to build the data packet to send to the server.  If it manages
not to crash and sends garbage, you'll probably get a generic mysql 1064
syntax error back.
