This one just bit me as well.  When I upgraded my frontend-only machine 
from 0.18.1-5 to 0.18.1-7 the usual "uninstall everything and then 
reinstall everything" process occurred (because of a dependency loop?). 
After everything was reinstalled I couldn't connect to the SQL server. 
It took a few evenings of hunting until I figured out libqt2-mt-mysql 
was missing.  I don't know what happened exactly, but I did another 
apt-get update and then it installed itself.  I'm guessing the frontend 
originally inherited libqt3-mt-mysql from some other dependency and 
that intermediate package was changed.  It's working as of today.

Joke template: Three guys walk into a bar. One of them is a wee bit
stupid, and the whole scene unfolds with a tedious inevitability.
