Question Restoring MySQL backups with mysql-administrator

My setup:

1) Development MySQL server running on my local computer.
2) Production MySQL server running on ISP's computer.

Whenever I make a change to development DB, test and verify the change, I then want to upload the change to the production DB. Here's my current process:

1) Create backup file on local machine using mysql-administrator GUI tool.
2) Login to production DB using mysql-administrator
3) Drop updated tables on production DB
4) Restore backup on productioin DB, choosing only those tables that have been modified

Part 3) is what I'd like to avoid having to do manually - for some reason the "Restore Backup" function doesn't seem to work properly in that it won't update an existing table on the production DB - I HAVE to drop the table first, THEN it'll load the changed table with no problem. Just wondering if anyone had any experience using mysql-administrator in this way, or if there were a better way to keep the DBs in sync?

For the record, my development machine is a Slackware 10.1 box with the MySQL version that comes with Slack 10.1 installed, and the latest version of mysql-administrator installed (as of yesterday.) The production machine is a Windows 2000(3?) server, not sure offhand what version of MySQL is running.

Thanks in advance
