Peering closely at the sent buffer:

> Sending packet @ 2003-04-15 09:04:14.689699
> |...3.... select d|
> |atediff( d,'2003-|
> |04-15',' 2003-04-|
> |14'|

What happened to the closing parenthesis?  

$dbh->prepare("select datediff(d,{d '2003-04-15'},{d '2003-04-14'}");
should be
$dbh->prepare("select datediff(d,{d '2003-04-15'},{d '2003-04-14'})");


P.S.  I'll follow up on the archive searching tonight.
