I was running my nightly mysqlhotcopy backup, when it gave me an error.

mysqlhotcopy has a line where it grabs all the tables from a certain

for example:
@tables = $_dbh->tables();

now this is just suppost to return all the tables of the current database.
The proble is it returns the database name as a suffix to all the tables.

for example it used to display like this:

not it does this

Why would it change all of a sudden because now I get this error:
Invalid db.table name 'db.db`.`table1' at /usr/bin/mysqlhotcopy line 856.
