I can't repeat your problem. Can you please send the table structure you are using that causes this problem. Also, you should use Connector/J 3.1.x to work with MySQL-4.1.x, as this version of the driver receives fixes related to MySQL-4.1 _before_ 3.0.x does. Once these fixes prove stable, they are backported to Connector/J 3.0.x when appropriate.
