Everytime I have had this problem, it has been a typo in the .mysql
files for a new created table.
Usually a typo in the table name itself.

Everytime I see this error, it's the firsr place I look.

	Example (locale.mysql):
	Database	locale	locale.txt	__SQLDNS__
	Database	locale	KEY		code
	Database	locael	COLUMN_DEF	"code=varchar(255)
primary key"

In this example, line #3 has a typo in the table name, IC thinks it's a
new definition for a new table, but it knows nothing of how to connect
to it.
