Wht is the difference between the thread implementation in rhapsody
and darwin; As you know, MySQL compiles and works on rhapsodi.

If you don't have pthread_kill(), MySQL will use the following code in
sql/mysqld.cc:kill_mysql() to send the signal:
This should force the MySQL server till shutdown nicely as long as you
don't have any connected clients!
Doesn't mysqladmin shutdown work if you don't have any connected
clients? I am quite sure this works on rhapsodi.

Yes; These should be posted to internals@stripped!
