        Mysql server is monitored by a shell script called mysqld_safe that wil 
try to restart the server
        if it terminates in an unexpected way.
        This scripts writes messages on stdout.
        But after the getty is started on /dev/console, stdout of this script 
has been revoked and
        any write will fail. When mysqld_safe tries to write, SIGPIPE is 
        SIGPIPE is not ingnored, so default action is taken that will immedialy 
kill the process.
        Setup mysql 5.5 server on a NetBSD 6.1 system and boot it. The server 
will not come up during boot.
        There are two possible ways to fix this.

        1. ignore SIGPIPE in mysqld_safe like other signals too

        Change the line "trap '' 1 2 3 15" into "trap '' 1 2 3 13 15" in 
mysqld_safe to fix this.

        2. ignore SIGPIPE in the rc-file and do not change mysqld_safe.

        Add "trap '' 13" in front of calling mysqld_safe in function 
        I'm not shure if this must be done in a sub-shell to avoid side effects 
in the startup code or not.
        If a subshell must be used to ignore SIGPIPE, then "(" and ")" must be 
placed around the
        new trap-statement and the call of the main program in background.
        In order to keep the semantic with the last background command in the 
shell the following code
        may be used:
( trap '' 13; exec  ${command} --user=${mysqld_user} .... ) &
