I did - I had copied you privately because you had addressed the issue
originally.  The message you received was also copied to the list, but I
haven't seen any response.  Bill MacAllister also has the exact same
problem, and has about reached the point where he's going to reinstall Linux
in an attempt to resolve the issue.

At this point, I'm going to drop a few debug statements in to see
if I can pin down the exact place where mysqld goes out to lunch, and I'll
keep you and the list posted.  If it appears that it's hanging in the thread
libraries, I will reinstall the thread libraries.  If that doesn't resolve
the issue, I'm going to be forced to reinstall the OS.

It seems that MySQL --debug mode should provide a little more information,
but I suppose that's wishful thinking :)  It's a very irritating problem,
because we've got all our corporate database stuff on MySQL on this
particular server... <sigh>
