Hi Morgan,

well, the goal is not just to make the test script work, but everywhere
in phpMyAdmin where we SELECT. This might be problematic and would
introduce some overhead.

Also, even if we fix this in phpMyAdmin, users who poll the database
with their own script will face the same problem, so it would be really
better for everyone if the PHP bug was fixed.
