This is still broken in WP 3.3.1.
Additionally the require_wp_db function has a massive error and can't have ever been tested.
(It should look like this - https://gist.github.com/1688245 )
With that amount of patching, you may as as well replace the bundled wp-db.php file completely. the wp-content/db.php hack seems like an afterthought, and plain doesn't work.
