Thanks, I'm glad to hear that it's fixed.

Interestingly enough, in addition to stumbling upon this problem with
mysql, the benchmarking I'm doing for a class project also found a problem
in the mysql client libraries.  For some reasons, when selecting blobs,
libmysql will get into a loop where it does 4 byte reads.  Yes, it will
read entire 100K objects 4 bytes at a time.  I'll post about this to the
relevant mailing lists next week...
