As of MySQL 3.23.50, named pipes are off by default (they caused certain
kinds of shutdown problems on some systems). To enable them use an
--enable-named-pipes option or put an enable-named-pipe line in the
[mysqld] group in an option file. I don't know, but would guess that
the same change was made in the 4.0.x series between 4.0.1 and 4.0.2,
from what you're describing.
