Thanks for the report. This is indeed the sort of thing we'd like to
hear about; a bug report would be appropriate.
I wonder if we can get rid of this implementation-specific "MyISAM"
thing anyway, since it's troublesome? Is it necessary to specify
something like that? It's not as if Freeciv needs a particularly
optimised database. (I've done zero research into why it's there, it was
like that when I found it.)
(What version of Freeciv are you using? If it's 2.4.x, then you might
want to consider using SQLite, which is perfectly adequate and less
hassle all round.)
