So that really was a quick hack. I think you should have 
mentionned that in the code.

Well, I still think it's suitable like that. Indeed dealing with 
an uploaded dump and a dump that would have been pasted in the 
SQL query textarea is really the same and I think it really has 
to be treated the same way.

Well, it's already fixed in CVS. Go and have a look at the code. 
Honestly, I don't think it's as complex as that. If you find 
some bug, please tell me.

Now, the bug should be away. Could you test?

Could you test the current CVS version with your test table, to 
see if my modification is ok? That would really help.
