there is a small bug with the --mycnf option in this version

/opt/mysql-administrator/bin/mysql-administrator --mycnf=/home/mysql/data/my.cnf

after calling the administrator the programm says

WARNING: Could not locate my.cnf file. Use the --mycnf=<path> option to specify its location.

but after connection to the server i can change all options, so the program found the my.cnf file correct.

How to repeat:
just run the program with mysql db not installed in /usr/local/mysql

Suggested fix:
just remove the message if found correctly

and it has to be the file and not the path to the file

so change --mycnf=<path> to --mycnf=/path/to/my.cnf
