show databases

show databases is returning data folder directory listing instead of information from data dictionary, is there some idea behind this behavior?

Answer Answered by Ian Gilfillan in this comment.

Databases were originally and still are implemented as directories in the data directory, so this is what SHOW DATABASES returns.
