Toying with Administrator, I've set the following options via UI:

#Log queries that are executed without benefit of any index.

#Logs will be rotated after expire-log-days days

Running MySQL 4.0.20d this caused the service to not startup after reboot.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Add a warning when adminsitrator is running on not fully supported MySQL version or don't set ini file options that cause problems on a specific version.

Thanks for reporting. The version check for this option is missing (see xml\mysqladmin_startup_variables_description.xml). We will add this asap.

Mhhm. Checked this file and mine actually says

<checkbox position="1" id="log-queries-not-using-indexes" version_start="4.1.0">

It seems as if the check is not executed, not that the information from the xml file is incorrect?

The xml-file is ok but there was a bug in the application.
