I have seen it posted here and on the Dovecot forum that upgrading to
mysql-5.5.8 on FreeBSD breaks both Postfix and Dovecot. Apparently
reverting to the mysql-client-5.5.7 corrects this problem.

Can any one else confirm this or is this simply an isolated incident?
If this is correct, is there a PR filed against it? I was not able to
locate one. Specifically, I am interested in the interaction on an
FreeBSD-8.2 / amd64 system.
