inserting a new row picks up garbage from the preceding field and
drops it into the first line of the field being edited. It is not possible
to edit this row. The "garbage" includes gremlins. phpMyAdmin
2.60 (not pl1), MySQL 4.1.1-alpha, Apache, etc. This is MacOS X
10.3.5 with vanilla Apache and PHP 4.3.4. Sounds like a memory
leak to me, or worse.
