Thanks Martyn,
I have committed this code in your name:

adding a check for the existence of only_db as you suggested. This way 
we can all test the behavior of your suggestion.

About the minimum MySQL version supported (5.5), as discussed on this 
list, "Considering that MySQL 5.5 has reached the "Generally Available" 
status on 2010-12-03 with version 5.5.8" we now mention that this is the 
minimum version supported.  This MySQL was released three years ago.

Note that the code does not block your using phpMyAdmin 4.1.x with MySQL 
  5.1, but it's not supported (meaning no tests, no fixes for 
5.1-specific issues, etc).
