Description:
It appears that /mysql-gui/common/<i>foo</i> have been hardcoded into some parts of mysql-admin. This means if one sets the `commondirpath`in the configure script of mysql-gui-common to something different than common, mysql-admin will not install properly (ie. run time errors).

See http://bugs.debian.org/260950 for details

How to repeat:
http://bugs.debian.org/260950

Suggested fix:
Use the `commondirpath` definition from gui-common configure script in mysql-admin source code.

There is a typo in the mysql-gui-common/source/linux/Makefile.am. The common dir is specified as MG_COMMONDIR while it should be MA_COMMONDIR. This makes the common dir always empty and prevents dialogs from loading (like table edit).

I'm not sure, but now this bug might be critical since the application will fail even in the default setup (commondirname=common)
