[wp-hackers] New wpdb instance

Hi list,

I need to connect to a different database to retrieve some data. So I'm 
instantiating a new $wpdb object:

$new_wpdb = new wpdb( params );

It happens sometimes that I enter the wrong credentials, and if WP_DEBUG 
is true, this renders the WP admin totally inaccessible and I need to 
rename my plugin's folder to get it back:


How can I check that the credentials I have are legit without blowing up 
the admin?
