My previous post was made with the assumption that you were using the
official binaries, and that they had not yet qualified them on Leopard.
I suggested Fink because it's an easy way to ensure you build from
source, not because I think Fink is in some essential way better. The
fact that you did build from source invalidates my whole line of reasoning.
Was this machine upgraded to Leopard, or freshly installed? And if
upgraded, did it have a previous version of MySQL on it before? If so,
environment differences when running under launchd may be causing the
linker to pick up old incompatible dynamic libraries. Try a 'make
uninstall', then go back through /usr and /var by hand to ensure no
traces remain, then reinstall. If MySQL's Makefiles don't support 'make
uninstall', just do a by-hand removal.
