First the Inline functionality is an excellent idea. It works when working on databases hosted locally. It however causes phpMyAdmin to be logged out if querying a network database. The normal query works on the network database, but the inline one does not.
My system details are:
Chromium Browser 7.0.517.44 and FF v3.6.3
MySQL Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.41, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 6.1
