Not "my" implementation. I just compiled 4.x straight out of the box.

Just now I tried to shut it down with ./mysqladmin -p shutdown and it
didn't shut down. I experienced this same problem with pkg before

I'll recompile and let you know.

The only thing I did that was different from my normal configure script
was to NOT use --without-readline so it would use MySQL's built-in. If
