Christoph Badura has kindly updated the mysql packages to incorporate
the bug fixes listed below. Of particular note are the security
fixes - see recent bugtraq discussions if you're interested in this
I suggest that you update your versions of the mysql packages
accordingly - the newer versions should be at a pkgsrc mirror now.
(They are in the supscan that has just run).
Many thanks to Christoph for doing this.
