Test database for recreating mysqldbimport error

Here is a zip file containing a MySQL dump file for a database consisting of one table with two columns (ID, foovaluefoo) and one row of data (contents of the dump file shown below).  I added CREATE and USE statements for a schema named ‘test’.

Importing this sql file with the Workbench 6.3 msqldbimport shell utility will cause the following error when executing the INSERT statement:

ERROR: Invalid statement:
INSERT INTO `some_table` (`ID`, `foo VALUES foo`)
ERROR: Query failed. 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check t
he manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to
use near '' at line 1

In general, if the substring ‘value’ appears as a fragment of a column name in any table, mysqldbimport will corrupt the column name by inserting the prettified keyword ‘ VALUES ‘ before executing the INSERT, thereby causing the INSERT to fail.  I’m not sure if this behavior is limited to the string ‘value’ or if mysqldbimport may also be corrupting other keyword-esque column names.
