specifying a custom port for a MySQL database connection

Hi all,

I'm having a problem. Using the revOpenDatabase function, the docs  
say that you can specify a port number by specifying the host,  
followed by a colon, followed by the port number. So something like  
"localhost:3306". Is this correct? Because I've tried it and I get an  
error "Unknown MySQL server host 'localhost:3306' (1)".

Has anyone used this and made it work? I need to figure out a  
solution for this asap.
