[Rd] RMySQL temporary table question

I've run into a bit of a problem with using the RMySQL library. I've
been attempting to create a temporary table in a MySQL database and then
perform a SELECT with a WHEREs clause on the table. In effect perform a
SELECT with a subSELECT. 

The problem is that it never seems to be able to find the table after I
create it. I've been using the dbSendQuery method to create the table
since this seems to be the one too use for sending all forms of SQL

Is it possible that MySQL is dropping the temporary table every time a
new dbSendQuery is run? Or (more likely) am I using the library



... asset pricing is paradoxical. On the one hand, the theory is so 
persuasive that it is widely believed to be correct, to the point that 
business, government and even jurisdiction appeal to it. Yet there is 
little evidence that the theory explains the past, let alone that it 
predicts the future.
