sending more mails does not mean that i want to force you to answer my
questions, it is just to keep the list up to date with my
'investigation' ... i know that you not ignore any messages sent here :-)

and i just need confirmation that this does not only not work on my system.

i just try forcing phpMyAdmin to walk through all possible ways - and i
just found out that most of the fallback code does not work there - i
think it is just that nobody runs a ver SHOW DATABASES disabled ...
