After a lot of tests, this bug is not mandatory! I mean, sometimes
associative array is okay... and sometimes it  is not! Just changing fields
orders or adding a field and the result became okay!! :-$
But it seems it occurs only when escaping fields (that I do systematically).

Thanks for your suggestion about mysqli... Unfortunly, i'm using freebsd
ports system for managing my php installation, and mysqli extensions is not
yet available on it. Anyway, this option needs code revision... 

Authentification with mySQL 4.1 runs fine for me (i have rebuild php after
installation of mysql-clients 4.1).

Funny, questions about MySQL 4.1.x seem to be popping up a lot recently.
With good reason.  There are some changes that make old mysql_*() functions
not work anymore.   I don't know all the ins and outs yet, but I ran into it
last weekend and everything I saw seemed to recommend switching to the
Improved MySQL Functions:

It is definitely supposed to help with being able to connect and log into
the database since the new password hashing scheme is incompatible with the
old MySQL standards.  It might help you with this other stuff too.

Good luck!
