[Instantrails-users] MySQL-Front strangeness - help needed, esp. from newbies

Greetings to all,

I've had two reports of strange behavior from MySQL-Front this week from folks new to RoR who are working through the IR tutorial.  I'm digging into it and would very much appreciate hearing from anyone else that's seeing this.  Newbies are in an especially good position to help here, as it appears that the problem lies in a recent release of MySQL-Front.  So here's the scenerio.

MySQL-Front will not allow the id on a table to be set to NOT NULL.

Even stranger, one of the reporters, Steve Ball, made the time to check it out with phpmyadmin.  Steve sent me a screen shot with both MySQL-Front and phpmyadmin looking at the same table, at the same time.  MySQL-Front shows the field as NULL and phpmyadmin shows it as NOT NULL.

My request is...

If your version of MySQL-Front will not allow you to set the id to NOT NULL, please email me (either here or offline at bill.walton at charter.net) with the version of MySQL-Front you have installed.  I am using Version 3.2, Build 10.15.  It does not exhibit this behavior.  Any help in isolating the build where the problem first appeared will be greatly appreciated.

BTW, this does not appear to be causing a problem with completing the tutorial.  OTOH, the tutorial is pretty basic WRT it's demands on the database.

Thanks in advance for your help!
