Error Code: 1416 - Cannot get geometry object from data you send to the GEOMETRY field

Hello,

I need to import a big shapefile into both PostgreSQL and MySQL. I used shp2pgsql.exe to convert it to a PostgreSQL compatible .sql file and succesfully imported this into my PostgreSQL database.

For MySQL, I used shp2mysql.exe (which can be found here -> http://kartoweb.itc.nl/RIMapper/) to create a .sql file for MySQL. When executing this .sql script, it works for roughly 90% of my geometries, but for some geometries, I get this error : Error Code: 1416 - Cannot get geometry object from data you send to the GEOMETRY field.

The errorlog (incl the first erroneous statement) can be found here :

I'm not sure, but I think all the failing statements are quite big. The one in the log is 58kb big.

Is there some kind of geometry size limitation in play here or am I doing something wrong?

Any help is welcome. Thanks in advance!

greetings,
Benny
