Bug 122675 MySQL native connector problem with LO

I get the following error message when using the Base Wizard in LO to connect to a MySQL database.

           Can't initialize character set unknown (path: compiled_in)

I get as far as clicking the the Test Connection button. When entering 
the password and clicking OK, I get this message. I have MySQL 8.0.13 
for my back end. I set up to use SHA2 with my password. (This may well 
be the where the problems lie.)
