" intermittent connection problems (error 2013)"

Look at SHOW PROCESSLIST; when you're having a connection problem.   If you see lots of
"unathenticated user" in the list, then it means you're having DNS problems.

Typically the best way to handle this is to set skip-name-resolve, and using ip addresses
instead of hostnames in your mysql users for authentication.

if you dont specify it it will listen to all interfaces,
and it is the standard option.

you dont break anything.
