Yeah, I notice this too, especially after upgrading to MAX. I really find it
My guess is that the RPM is slightly different than the God given RH
version, so there are TWO KXXmysqld in /etc/rc.d/init.d or in one of the
rc.3 or rc.5 or something and so one shuts it down, then the other executes
and it fails b/c it was already shut down. I sooo wish the person that
packages that RPM would fix this. Same with the mysql-max issue. It creates
a mysql instead of mysqld (or vise versa), and it doesn't have that nice:
"Loading mysql [ok]" style thing, it just barfs some ugly text instead.
