It's good advice for sure, however not practicable at the moment. As I said, this laptop is not net-accessible, and I just needed to get a job done. According to the requirement list, I'd have to update php, expat, mysql version! - surely a case of the tail wagging the dog? - and even xorg, pretty much everything. Not really doable on a 28.8k modem link. So, given my broadband application is on 'hold' awaiting local enabling which might take months, I'm going for a 6.1 4-CD set as soon as they're available; packages and/or distfiles is really the only way to go for those (still many) parts of the planet without fast, cheap connections. > > Think I'll start again with the installed config.

I did start again from scratch; no difference. Still can't believe that such a show-stopper bug wouldn't have obviously affected many phpmyadmin users on 5.4 - people do use it to edit records, don't they? - so still have to suspect some local config issue.

Yes, read every one since 2.6.1; nothing that struck me as even similar. Anyway, thankyou Matthew for your helpful advice and clues.
