Richard Jones' Log: MySQL "gotchas" page
The contents listing includes "What goes in - isn't (always) what comes out" and "Silent Column Specification Changes". And the "February 31st" entry really has to be read to be believed. As the author puts it in considering one of the gotchas, "Whoops, no InnoDB table support":
This gotcha is true to MySQL's apparent design philosophy: "if it's not supported, do the next best thing. Silently."
Of course, I'd have to add to this page my own experiences dropping databases, though I'm pretty sure this is actually a bug, even if the developers refuse to acknowledge it exists.
Update: I missed the link to this other page.
