Unfortunately the above has nothing to do with the problem.  The above
just shows that you have a thread in the thread cache (I thought you
had this turned off ?) and that the thread is waiting to be restarted.

This doesn't explain why you can't connect to the mysqld server.

Next time, try doing

info threads
thread #
thread #

to see what the different threads are doing.

When you do a 'ps' do you have any mysqld servers that are marked as
'defunct' ?  This usually indicates that you some thread crashed. If
that is the case then we need to find out what is crashing mysqld.
