Could you please read the Manual section:
This contains a lot of suggestions what you can do to find out why
MySQL crashes (it shouldn't)..

You will probably have to get a new source distribution and configure
this with --with-debug to find the problem.

Without the patch on BSDI 3.1, mysqld will not start or crash a lot.
If I remember correctly, the thr_alarm or thr_lock tests (in mysys)
didn't work without the patch.
