To clarify, if you run safe_mysql manually, it works fine, but if you run
safe_mysql as part of the bootup process, it fails.
Usually, this type of behavior in programs is caused by:
1. Bootup start and manual start are by different users with different
2. Some facility needed by the program is not yet running. resolver,
network, file system mount, etc. Try starting mysql last at the particular
runlevel (3, I assume).
If you manually start in some way different from the bootup start, e.g. by
not using safe_mysql, the answer may be in the difference.
