yes, i thought about the same ;-)

btw. possible we should/could add a message on main.php if mysql client 
lib and MySQL server version differs (knowing that this is not the 
source of this problem as even with server version same as client lib 
version the error would occur if the client is below <5.0 or something)

"Your mysql client lib version (x.xx.xx) differs from your server 
version (x.xx.xx), MySQL AB advises to use same versions, as there are 
several errors that can happen."

or something similar ...

read on:

As the the above link holds only connectors for Windows the statements 
are true for all os.
