Subject: t/40blobs.t skip_all logic is broken in 4.014
Download (untitled) / with headers

In the test file t/40blobs.t a method call on the database handle is made before checking to se if the connection worked, causing a test failure instead of skipping the tests: Can't call method "get_info" on an undefined value at t/40blobs.t line 37. This affects anyone installing DBD::mysql in an environment with no live database against which to test. This seems like an obvious bug, since all the rest of the test scripts correctly call skip_all when the connection fails, which at least results in the tests passing. This bug causes automated installations to fail, needlessly. Simple, trivial patch attached.
