A couple...First, why aren't you using Connector/J 3.1.x with MySQL-4.1.x? If you're using the newest MySQL server, and want to use all of it's features, and have the latest bug fixes, then you should be using the latest version of the JDBC driver as well.

Hmm...there's a _whole_ multipage table in the docs that tells you what error conditions on the server will throw what SQLExceptions with given SQLStates...However 'unknown command' usually means something more serious is goofed up, like your network connection is flaky or you have a bad server what the server is receiving is not what it expects.

Does this error go away if you use Connector/J 3.1.5? Does it go away if you use MySQL-4.0.x? Does this happen under load? Does it happen the very first time you try the query? What does the query look like? Unfortunately, a stack trace doesn't give much for anybody to go on :(

This error was only there if you used MySQL-4.1.x _and_ Connector/J 3.1.x afaik. Since you're not using Connector/J 3.1.x, seems like this is unrelated :(
