Hey, IBM is also playing with MySQL, or it looks like they are doing
something serious with it :-)

Sounds like it is a TechConnect issue. Not sure what it does, exactly,
but a typical way to check if a process is running is ps | grep
<process_name> , or if it is written with the idea that other
applications would care to know if it is running, it might leave a lock
file. Check the TechConnect documentation to be sure.
