Description:
I just got this with the bk tree :

[papa@gbichot client]$ ./mysql -uroot
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 2 to server version: 4.0.11-gamma-debug-log

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql> 

Then I shutdown mysqld, and in the client I do

mysql> select now();
ERROR 2006: MySQL server has gone away
No connection. Trying to reconnect...
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
ERROR:
Can't connect to the server

Then I restart the mysqld server.
In the client I do 

mysql> connect;
ERROR 1049: Unknown database ¬(;Ðpöÿ¿(öÿ¿h_@'
mysql>

How to repeat:
see Description above

I can reproduce the bug with 4.1, just launching mysqld and then typing :

mysql> connect;
ERROR 1049: Unknown database 'ûÿ¿ÁÌ'

'use' displays the same behaviour :

mysql> use;
ERROR 1049: Unknown database 'ûÿ¿ÁÌ    '

Another funny result :

mysql> use
ERROR 1049: Unknown database 'help;'

mysql> connect
ERROR 1049: Unknown database 'help;'

I still have the problem in the latest bk tree :

[root@forum] /usr/local/mysql-4.1_build/bin> ./mysql -uroot -p                                                            <21:36:28

It's seems the fix doesn't always works as expected
