These problems are probably caused by changes between the version of MySQL 
that you are using and the one I used when writing mysqlclient.ss.  It's 
unfortunately pretty sensitive.

I have a new version of the library, written using the foreign interface, that 
provides a Scheme interface for version 10, 12, and 14 of the libmysqlclient 
library (ie. version 3.23, 4.0, and 4.1, respectively, of MySQL).  It seems to 
be a much less flaky package, and I hope to make it available soon (within a 
week) on PLaneT.  If you can wait, I'd recommend using this.  If not, let me 
know what version of MySQL you are using (from mysql_version.h) and I can send 
you a patch.
