No, I did not run the mysql_upgrade because this was a minor upgrade.

I was running 5.0.88 Community Server binary install built by mysql developers
rock solid for long time. Then I decided to upgrade to latest 5.0.x but there is
no such build for FreeBSD by the MySQL developers. So I decided to give the
ports version a shot. I compiled and installed databases/mysql50-server
with BUILD_STATIC The latest mysql50-server under FBSD 8.3 is 5.0.95
BTW, I'm doing this on FreeBSD 8.3-p3 AMD64

PS I just had it die on a different machine that is less loaded and uses less
