imho this is a bug in the plist.  It shouldn't shutdown mysql in the
first place.  I remove the "@stopdaemon mysql-server" from pkg-plist. 
Then after I portupgrade mysql, I just run
"/usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server restart" to bring up the new version
with only a fraction of a second of downtime.
