I've never experienced problems with that neither but if you want to
follow the recommendation, first upgrade to 4.1:
"2.4.16. Upgrading MySQL
As a general rule, we recommend that when upgrading from one release series
to another, you should go to the next series rather than skipping a series.
For example, if you currently are running MySQL 3.23 and wish to upgrade to
a newer series, upgrade to MySQL 4.0 rather than to 4.1 or 5.0."
