I have justed upgraded R v1.7.0 on Windows NT 4 and have installed the
latest RMySQL (version 0.5-1)and DBI (version 0.1-5) packages.

When I issue the following commands (tactfully adjusted) R just crashes and
disappears, any ideas?

m <- dbDriver("MySQL")
con <- dbConnect(m, dbname="xxx", user="xxx", password="xxx",

I get the same result with mysqlNewConnection().

I've sucessfully used both previous versions of R and the MySQL package
together with no problems.
