We just found this out !

The problem is that MySQL 3.22.27 is compiled on a RedHat 6.0 system
(which uses the default glibc 2.1). Even if we have compiled it
staticly it will not work properly on a RedHat 5.2 system!

(Some times I REALLY hate these glibc issues;  It's impossible to make 
on Linux a static linked binary that works on all platforms)

We found that at least the --user option will not work.
You may get 3.22.27 to work by removing --user from mysql.server and

mysql.server start

The above means that we have to look into producing different RPM:s
for glibc 2.0 and glibc 2.1 based systems :(
