Hi Dan,

      I have built  this connector while also building LibreOffice 4.0.1
alpha. I am also beginning the process to add it to the Extensions on
the LO website. Since the previous 32 bit connector for mysql no longer
works for 4.X, I wonder if this will change the information needed to
make it available to the Extensions pages. LO recognizes it as
MySQL Connector 1.0.2.
       So, any suggestions as what to do in a case like this?

Well I would take a deep breath, sit down and try and think of some
pleasant thoughts because...

the whole mysql connector code is being reworked to switch to MariaDB at
this very moment. In other words, the switch you used to build the
connector has changed, and the code is in a serious state of flux, so it
may or may not build for you anymore...(it doesn't for me on OSX, but
then that's been par for the course recently)

No announcement on the dev list, just pushed like that to master,
without warning. Whilst I appreciate that developers just "do their own
thing", I had understood that feature changes like this were to be
worked on as a separate branch and then merged, ho hum. It means that I
spent 2 days trying to debug my crash problem with my OSX connector with
gdb and other assorted OSX programs only to find out that I couldn't
rebuild it again. Needless to say, I'm one unhappy bunny.

I've decided to throw in the towel on this one. I'm also going to stop
wasting my time on mysql/db QA in general and building on OSX for
testing purposes.

I will however wish you good luck in your endeavour.
