When i try to fill a dataset via the MySqlAdapter.fill method it simply hangs. Trying to explicitly throw the error and outputing the error message and stack trace, I get the following : 

Non-negative number required.\r\nParameter name: countstack trace :    at System.IO.BufferedStream.Read(Byte[] array, Int32 offset, Int32 count)\r\n   at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.PacketReader.Read(Byte[]& buffer, Int64 pos, Int64 len) in d:\\program files\\mysql\\mysql connector net 1.0.3\\src\\mysqlclient\\packetreader.cs:line 224\r\n   at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.PacketReader.ReadString(Int64 length) in d:\\program files\\mysql\\mysql connector net 1.0.3\\src\\mysqlclient\\packetreader.cs:line 297\r\n   at MySql.Data.Types.MySqlInt64.ReadValue(PacketReader reader, Int64 length) in D:\\Program Files\\MySQL\\MySQL Connector Net 1.0.3\\src\\MySqlClient\\Types\\MySqlInt64.cs:line 74\r\n   at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.NativeDriver.ReadFieldValue(Int32 index, MySqlField field, MySqlValue valObject) in d:\\program files\\mysql\\mysql connector net 1.0.3\\src\\mysqlclient\\nativedriver.cs:line 484\r\n   at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.CommandResult.get_Item(Int32 index) in d:\\program files\\mysql\\mysql connector net 1.0.3\\src\\mysqlclient\\commandresult.cs:line 76\r\n   at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlDataReader.GetFieldType(Int32 i) in d:\\program files\\mysql\\mysql connector net 1.0.3\\src\\mysqlclient\\datareader.cs:line 350\r\n   at System.Data.Common.SchemaMapping.SetupSchemaWithoutKeyInfo(MissingMappingAction mappingAction, MissingSchemaAction schemaAction, Boolean gettingData, DataColumn parentChapterColumn, Object chapterValue)\r\n   at System.Data.Common.SchemaMapping.SetupSchema(SchemaType schemaType, String sourceTableName, Boolean gettingData, DataColumn parentChapterColumn, Object parentChapterValue)\r\n   at System.Data.Common.DbDataAdapter.FillSchemaMapping(Object data, String srcTable, IDataReader dataReader, Int32 schemaCount, DataColumn parentChapterColumn, Object parentChapterValue)\r\n   at System.Data.Common.DbDataAdapter.FillSchemaMappingTry(Object data, String srcTable, IDataReader dataReader, Int32 schemaCount, DataColumn parentChapterColumn, Object parentChapterValue)

How to repeat:
This only happens in cases when my query contains more than 1 resultset. To test you can try the following stored procedure that returns two result sets :)

   SELECT 1;
   SELECT 2;

Now trying to fill a dataset via the MySqlAdapter will give you this error.

private MySqlConnection GetConnection(MySqlConnection conn)
			if (conn != null)
			string connStr = "host=localhost;database=xxxx;user id=root;password=xxxxx;port=3306";

				conn = new MySqlConnection( connStr );

			catch (MySqlException ex) 
				MessageBox.Show( "Error connecting to the server: " + ex.Message );
			return conn;
		private void TestDataSet()
			MySqlConnection	conn = null;
			DataSet ds = null;
			conn = GetConnection(conn);
			MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand("TestDataAdapter", conn);
			cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
			using( MySqlDataAdapter da = new MySqlDataAdapter(cmd) )
				da.FillError += new FillErrorEventHandler(this.FillError);
				ds = new DataSet();
					// Fill the DataSet using default values for DataTable names, etc
				catch (Exception e)
					string s = e.Message;
					throw new Exception("ERROR IN MySqlDataAdapter.Fill method, Unable to fill dataset: " + e.Message
						+ " stack : " + e.StackTrace.ToString(),e);
			dataGrid1.DataSource = ds;

		private void FillError(object sender, FillErrorEventArgs args)
			string s = "Error message : " + args.Errors.Message +
				"stack trace : " + args.Errors.StackTrace.ToString();
			args.Continue = true;

		private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

Suggested fix:
Going in debug mode and stepping through, it seems that the second result set is retrieved, and after the value 2 is retrieved it continues to read the stream and PacketReader.Read method is called with the bytesLeft variable having a value of -1 ...I have tried to fix but this is no walk in the park, and requires a thorough study of the various methods being called and what they do. My apologies if I cannot do more.

I have cloned http://mysql.bkbits.net/connector-net connector-net and built and tried to end up having the same error. Checking the "changes" text file in the connector-net folder, all i see is : 
Bug #7243 calling prepare causing exception [fixed]
Fixed another small problem with prepared statements
Bug #7258  	MySqlCommand.Connection returns an 

So, i'm assuming that there is no fix as of yet for this bug, unless I missed something, can you confirm ;-?

Thanks :)
