When I ran introspection against mysql 4.1, I've got the following error:

 python  inspectdb
# This is an auto-generated Django model module.
# You'll have to do the following manually to clean this up:
#     * Rearrange models' order
#     * Make sure each model has one field with primary_key=True
# Feel free to rename the models, but don't rename db_table values or field names.
# Also note: You'll have to insert the output of ' sqlcustom [appname]'
# into your database.

from django.db import models

class Wrk(models.Model):
Traceback (most recent call last):

To fix this problem I've added the DatabaseError to the "except" statement in get_relations table.
The patch is attached.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

I'm calling this wontfix because MySQL4.1 doesn't provide the metadata that is necessary for inspectdb to work reliably. Hiding the error doesn't fix the problem.
