We had that problem as well; like some other key-press-response
problems we have, it seems intermittent.

$ mysql -u root -p mythconverg

... etc.  I think you can set all of them in one pass, but I don't
remember what the syntax is for that.  Do a describe channel before you
do that and check the column type; I assume it's numeric, but not
having my box handy, I can't tell; in the unlikely event it's a string,
you'd have to single quote the 49143.
