MySQLdb 1.0 cannot connect to MySQL 4.1 server when
the user has non-empty password :(

    You don't say what version of the client libraries you are
    using. I'm guessing it's 4.0.x. Why don't you do what the
    error message says and get an upgraded client.

    Here's a page that's likely relevant
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Old_client.html

    I'm having the same problem. There's a news item saying a
    new release candidate is out (1.1.5) and it sounds like
    mySQL 4.1 is being supported. But I haven't figured out
    where this 1.1.5 might be downloaded. Why isn't it listed
    with the others?

    Maybe you don't see 1.1.5 because 1.1.6 is out; 1.1.7 should
    be out this weekend.

    Sorry, was looking for win32 binary but I see in docs you've
    stopped providing that kind of support. I'll advise my
    client (a Windows shop) that Perl through ActiveState might
    be a better option for mySQL work (for them -- personally I
    favor Python).

    No, Windows support is the same as it's always been: I don't
    have the tools to build a Windows binary, but if somebody
    sends me one, I'll make it available.
