Well, it *did* close the gap by a couple of hundred connections :-)
I honestly have no idea what could cause this. I wouldn't immediately think of a leak in
MySQL as those are system tools that *should* check the same location for their stats.
I seem to remember you running mostly redhat systems, maybe poke their support? Also, it
may be a bit too panicky, but when system tools report such wildly differing numbers I
involuntarily start reaching for the rootkit scanners.
