I had also noticed the problem in a previous master build on Linux, and had
reports back from other users with the Linux connector I've made available
on the LibreOffice extensions site. That is why I changed the LO
compatibility version number to 3.5 for the connectors I have put up there.

However, in my test yesterday with my own build from master from 2 days
ago, and the Oracle mysql connector, I had no problems installing or
running the connector, so in effect, I can no longer reproduce the problem
on 32bit Linux.

In view of Lionel's comments, it seems clear that as I compiled against 3.5
master source, the connectors I have built and made available will only
work with versions >= 3.5, and at present these are only available for
Linux and Mac (my build platforms).

So it still remains to be determined whether, as you stated, the old Oracle
connector is only problematic on Windows. I shall also be testing on Mac
later today with the Oracle connector to see if that also raises an error
with the latest build I have on Mac.
