The DBD::mysql documentation for the "mysql_init_command" option is incorrectly formatted.

An example of this can be seen at http://search.cpan.org/~capttofu/DBD-mysql-4.020/lib/DBD/mysql.pm

It shows as:

 =item mysql_init_command

 If your DSN contains the option "mysql_init_command_timeout=##", then
 this SQL statement is executed when connecting to the MySQL server.
 It is automatically re-executed if reconnection occurs.

Which suggests that due to some formatting error this list item is not properly being rendered as a list item.

How to repeat:
Go to the URL above, or run "perldoc DBD::mysql"

Suggested fix:
Fix the POD.

Thank you for the report.

We don't work on DBD::mysql bugs anymore. All its bugs should go to CPAN: https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=DBD-mysql

I re-submitted your report to https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=83350
Please subscribe to the new report on CPAN and work with DBD::mysql developers in case if they need additional details.
