If you use a culture - for eample german - in your system environment the update and insert command (with decimal data types for example) generated by the tokenizer throws the exception 'column count doesn't match value count at row 1'.

If the value to store in a decimal field is 0, the command will be executed successfully.

I guess, the error is caused by the different number formats for decimal,float etc. in german.



How to repeat:
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `sc`.`kundenauftrag`;
CREATE TABLE  `sc`.`kundenauftrag` (
  `AuftragsNr` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `KundenNr` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
  `Rechnungswert` decimal(19,2) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0.00',
  `Position` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1',
  PRIMARY KEY (`AuftragsNr`,`Position`) USING BTREE,
  KEY `KundenNr` (`KundenNr`)

This bug still exists for me. I'm from Denmark, and I'm currently using utf-8 on the database. Why not simply replace all numerical commas with dots when building the sql?

This bug still exists for me. I'm from Spain, with DECIMAL data type the connector work fine, but with DOUBLE data type the connector 
throws the exception 'column count doesn't match value count at row 1'.

Due to server being down I can not check on patch and confirm Bug#44455 is actually regression but it might be.
