I have created the 'test' database. I created it when I was testing out how
to get geometry columns in manually. Is there some sort of property that
needs to be set for the database to allow FWTools access?

According to MySQL driver docs:


Currently, MySQL driver does not support database creation.

So, you have to create 'test' database manually first.
Then you can import layers to it.
