Dick, I'm guessing that maybe your friend installed a new version of
MySQL in a different place from where you originally installed it.  But
your friend didn't replace the startup script (probably it's in
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/????), so that started up the old version of MySQL
when your machine booted back up.

Make sure you've only got one version of MySQL around.  Check in
/usr/local/bin for mysql programs.  Check in /usr/local/mysql.

This is just my best guess for what's going on.
