ogr2ogr MySQL - -tables option appears not to work

Perhaps I am not understanding this option properly, but as far as I can tell the -tables option like the following: ogr2ogr -overwrite -update -append -f MySQL MySQL:"spatialData,user=spatial,tables=testing" ../../canvec_030n13_shp/030n13_8_0_VE_1240009_2.shp should put the geometry data into the table called 'testing' and not create a unique table (in this case it creates one called 030n13_8_0_VE_1240009
From my trials (version 1.8.0) it appears that there is no difference in behaviour with or without the -tables= option (and no data appears in the 'testing' table, which I created by renaming a table that was auto-created). What I'm trying to do is import many shapefiles without creating a unique table for each, and rather have all the data in one table.
I've taken a quick look at the code, but would need LOTS more time to follow it through.
Thanks for any assistance, and for a really great product.
