I bet it is. The mysql driver uses some weird check (in  
_translate_mysql_type) to find out whether or not a field is binary.  
Unless I'm dense the code in question may actually cause other  
problems as well, so I'd like to ask everyone with some MySQL  
knowledge to have a look at it. Also, the existing check may be  
version dependent. Vikram, which MySQL version are you running?
