I'd suggest to burn all Palms... ;-)
So, adding another line should magically solve the problem:
$sql = str_replace("\r\n", "\n", $sql);
+ $sql = str_replace("\n\r", "\n", $sql);
$sql = str_replace("\r", "\n", $sql);

Well, is the query passed by reference to the parser?
My code should only change the query string the parser uses for ist
work. The one that will be send to the server should not be affected,

Both with the same result.

Looks like we've found a MySQL bug here, because
mysql_query("SELECT 2; -- SELECT 1;");
throws an error, too, although it's not meant to!
It appears to me as if MySQL only accepts ANSI comments before a real
Try this one:
mysql_query("--\n-- This is a comment\n--\nSELECT 'foo';");
This one works fine.
