I have no possibility to setup a back-sql with mysql right now.  Can you 
post your configuration?  Can you post some (verbose) logs of operations 
affecting back-sql (e.g. with BACKSQL_TRACE manually #defined in 
back-sql/back-sql.h)?  Can you step thru a search into backsql_search() 
and see if it gets called and why it doesn't get to contacting the rdbms?
