Description:
comparing the version strings of the certified binaries for 'mysqld' and 'mysqld-nt' shows inconsistent usage of '-cert' in the version string.

## --- version --- mysqld ---
##
c:\...\mysqld.exe  Ver <M.y.SQL>-pro-gpl-cert for Win32 on ia32 (MySQL Pro Certified Server (GPL))
c:\...\mysqld.exe  Ver <M.y.SQL>-pro for Win32 on ia32 (MySQL Pro Certified Server (Commercial))
==> 'pro-gpl-cert' is shown for GPL, but "only" 'pro' for the COMMERCIAL version

## --- version --- mysqld-nt ---
##
c:\...\mysqld-nt.exe  Ver <M.y.SQL>-nt for Win32 on ia32 (MySQL Pro Certified Server (GPL))
c:\...\mysqld-nt.exe  Ver <M.y.SQL>-pro-nt for Win32 on ia32 (MySQL Pro Certified Server (Commercial))
==> here for both binaries no '-cert' is shown.

How to repeat:
- install certified [ PRO | PRO-GPL ] version 
- run 'mysqld --version' and 'mysqld-nt --version'

Suggested fix:
always use '-cert' for certified binaries
