Not RoR this time.

I have a (legacy) VB program that I support. It runs productively
against a 4.1 server - so the client libs on the Windows machine are (of
course) 4.1.

The production server is running linux (slackware, I believe).

I have to connect to the development server as well as the production
server, and I have no ability to force the production server to upgrade
to mysql 5. Those responsible for the production server won't upgrade
until *THEY* have a reason to need to.
