Package: libmysql-java
Version: 5.1.10+dfsg-2
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

libmysql-java 5.1.0 does not work with prepared queries.

NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement
    at com.mysql.jdbc.ConnectionImpl.clientPrepareStatement(ConnectionImpl.java:1445)
    at com.mysql.jdbc.ConnectionImpl.prepareStatement(ConnectionImpl.java:4291)
    at com.mysql.jdbc.ConnectionImpl.prepareStatement(ConnectionImpl.java:4190)
    at sql.SqlServerRecord.prepareStatement(SqlServerRecord.java:228)

Replacing the mysql-java.jar in /usr/share/java
with mysql-connector-5.0.8 or 5.1.6 makes the problem go away.
