Your MySQL connection id is 2 to server version: 4.1.3-beta-valgrind-max-debug-log

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

MASTER> show variables like 'lower_case_table_names';
| Variable_name          | Value |
| lower_case_table_names | 1     |
1 row in set (0.06 sec)

MASTER> drop database ZZ;
ERROR 1008 (HY000): Can't drop database 'ZZ'; database doesn't exist
MASTER> drop database zz;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.08 sec)

How to repeat:
see description

Suggested fix:
in mysql_rm_db(), move the test for lower_case_table_names up.
