Cocoon: No valid JdbcConnection class available

I'm just getting started with Cocoon and trying to get the database connectivity part working with MySQL. I set up the database for the personnel example, set up the configurations and installed the MySQL driver, but when I try to run it I get the following error:
org.apache.cocoon.ProcessingException: Exception in ServerPagesGenerator.generate(): java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not get the datasource org.apache.avalon.excalibur.datasource.NoValidConnectionException: No valid JdbcConnection class available
I do have the driver in the WEB-INF/lib folder. I've tried two different versions (mm.mysql-2.0.12-bin.jar and mysql-connector-java-3.0.6-stable-bin.jar), both of which work with other Tomcat webapps on the same machine.
Here's the really weird thing: if I enter the wrong password in the datasource description in cocoon.xconf, I get an "Invalid authorization specification" error instead. It seems to me that in order to get this type of error, cocoon must be talking to the database, but that would be impossible if it had no valid JdbcConnection class, right? Or am I misunderstanding how these things work?
I'm running this on Mac OS X, 10.2.6, JDK 1.4.1, MySQL 4.0.12, Cocoon 2.0.4, Tomcat 4.1.18, Apache 1.3.27.
