it could be that php is compiled the wrong way, or this could be a bug. im not sure.

the problem is with the left() syntax in mysql, it wont output anything.

working fine when i run it in a shell, but not with php!

Reproduce code:
select left(blob,5) from table

Expected result:
if blob would contain 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'

it should return 'abcde'

Actual result:
