yes.  i am running MySQL 5.0.15 and R 2.2.0.  everything appears to  
work fine now, although I've found that MySQL "goes away" (I believe  
that is close to the syntax from the R error message--can't replicate  
right now) if I don't call to it for a long period of time. not sure  
whether that is a bug or security measure.
