I have some problems with mysqld 5.0.18 (pkgsrc-2005Q4 with current 
databases/mysql5-client and databases/mysql5-server) on an amd64 (one 
Xeon) machine. The daemon refuses to start if it's configured to run 
innodb engine and there are the innodb files present in mysql data 
directory (it starts correctly only when it initially creates the innodb 
files, subsequent restart again fails). It is possible to start it 
correctly with "--skip-innodb", but once I also got:

mysqld: Error detected by libpthread: Invalid mutex.
Detected by file 
line 334, function "pthread_mutex_unlock".
See pthread(3) for information.

Do you have any idea what could be wrong? (u)limits are stretched to 
maximum for the process so this shouldn't be the problem. It's NetBSD 
3.0, amd64, 2G RAM, slightly modified GENERIC kernel.
