On version 4.2-RC2, I am using

$wpdb->get_col( "SHOW TABLES LIKE ..." )

to check for the existence of a table.

For a non existent table this outputs the message

WordPress database error Table '...' doesn't exist for query SHOW FULL COLUMNS FROM ...

Since, this a test for the existence of a table it is valid that the table doesn't exists. This same code works in the current version 4.1.1.
