rake db:migrate error when using differing libmysql.dll and mysql servers

I'm using a fedora mysql server, while the ruby server runs off of windows. the libmysql.dll form my previous post came from a 5.1 windows mysql server.

The version mysql server on fedora is 5.0. This caused the following error:

D:\workspace\rubytest>rake db:migrate
(in D:/workspace/rubytest)
rake aborted!
Mysql::Error: Commands out of sync; you can't run this command now: SHOW TABLES

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

get the mysql-noinstall 5.0 server and copy the libmysql.sql into /ruby/bin
