Amarok crashes when Mysql database is selected


I have 2 computers one of them contains a vast amount of mp3's
I run Amarok with an Mysql database to manage them.

My other computer an old laptop (compaq armada e500) is located elsewhere.
Because of speed i decided to connect to my mp3 collection using the database wich resides on my maincomputer.

I tested with the mysql client with the following commands and it connected without problems.

Mysql -hserver -u laptop -p
connect amarok
select * from artist;

I've also made sure i have write access on the database by using an update query.
So there is no problem with that.

I've setup a samba share on the main computer and mounted it on my laptop on the same location as on the maincomputer.

I can read and write there without problems.

No here's the trouble when i select a mysql database in, configure amarok=>collection, amarok crashes when i click apply or ok. I cannot start amarok anylonger. When i remove ~/.kde/share/config/amarokrc it starts without problems.

When i build the collection on the laptop itself using the built in database i have no problems.
Thing is the laptop is so damn slow i just want to use the database on the main computer. I run amarok from the standard repo's. Kubuntu 6.06 amarok 1.4

I'm not having any special experience with this issue, but you could start amarok from a terminal and have a look at the messages it's generating.
