A little more information on this one (Robert contacted me, but I don't
know enough about OS/2 to know what to suggest):
- The mysql.exe binary from his distribution can connect to the server okay.
- The program he's trying to compile and run does connect to the server,
because if he runs mysqladmin, it shows the connection, in "unknown"
state (or perhaps "login"). But the connection never successfully
Perhaps some difference between his compiler, and the compiler used to
build the OS/2 binary distribution? I dunno.
