What about the mysql database itself -- the grant tables? I'm the only
user right now (and my partner will join a bit later on), but I my
project won't go "public" until it gets onto a more stable server, so
I'm not worried about any connections being open, but won't the grant
tables be accessed when I execute mysqladmin shutdown? Oh... right,
I'm not executing that. Alright, that's good news! Thanks!
