API2 Db Runtime exception gDB.BeginTransaction

I’m getting a runtime exception on gDB.BeginTransaction.

The error is:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near ‘TRANSACTION’ at line 1

Totally confused!

Pretty sure that the plugin uses the wrong syntax for starting a transaction
Manually do it using the right stuff and ExecuteSQL

Its been reported at least twice and not fixed yet

Have you tried:

gDB.ExecuteSQL ("begin transaction")
