Cool, cheers Andy.

Although that was my initial thoughts too, I did try testing calling the 
SET NAMES query, but it didn't seem to do much, but then I've just 
realised that was me being a bit silly ($this->charset wasn't defined 
becuase that's done after the MULTIPLE_DB bit :))

However, just copying the code doesn't work, because $this->query tries 
to connect to the database in mutliple mode.

I've thought of just doing a straight "mysql_query" on it which may work?

If you come up with a better way and want me to test it please drop me 
an email (unfortunately, the platform I'm testing on is not available to 
the internet at large).
