MySQL Server 5.0.27 is not importing my foriegn keys.  All my tables are in unicode format like this `my-table`.

How to repeat:
> create table called `my-table`
> add foriegn key
> backup
> restore

*** all constraints get dropped on import from either QB or Admin

Suggested fix:
Verify inserting of foriegn keys for unicode tables works succesfully

I can not repeat now.  Would appreciate quick look.

Thank you for the bug report. I restored your backup and indeed I was unable
to see the foreign keys on Administrator, however using the mysql.exe

mysql> use goolabri
Database changed
mysql> show create table `flat-charges`;
  PRIMARY KEY  (`id`),
  KEY `idchargetype` (`idchargetype`),
  CONSTRAINT `FK_flat-charges_1` FOREIGN KEY (`idchargetype`) REFERENCES `type-charges` (`id`)


So in this case is a bug on GUI tools. Please verify with the command
prompt clients. Thanks in advance.

Hi Miguel,

Since I can no longer repeat this problem on my office or home computer I will close bug.  I assure you though - at 1 stage I did loose all my CONSTRAINTS.

The flaw you found in GUI-TOOLS is one of my previous bugs so I will have to keep an eye on this problem.
