That is indeed correct.

is the following: MySQL Version mysqlnd 5.0.8-dev - 20102224 - $Revision:
This seems to be a bug which is also evident in the 1.7.8 beta version and in version 1.7.4/1.7.5 - I have reported it.
XAMPP 1.7.3 is fine and may be downloaded from here:SourceForge XAMPP File Repository
These instruction may help with uninstalling and reinstalling using the zip method:viewtopic.php?p=179699#p179699

You can see all the versions that PHP uses in 1.7.7 by opening http://localhost/xampp/phpinfo.php
I will investigate but you could also visit the Form Tools forum and see if there is a work around already created for this issue.EDIT
When you get to step 2 during installation where it tells you that it can't continue because of the MySQL version then to continue click on the Ignore button just under the MySQL version field.
Then click on Continue to enter the database details that you created using phpMyAdmin
At the end the script installs without issue and allows login after you have deleted or renamed the install folder.
