To provide confirmation that sharing files is a 'bad idea' between any
two running mysqld binaries, here are the instructions in the manual on
how to have two or more mysqld instances (which can be the same program
or two or more different versions of mysqld) running on your machine at
the same time. Consider a shared disk as being part of the same machine
as it's the files that really matter in your situation.
Really. I mean it. Don't do it.
