I recently noticed after the libtool bump using libthr on 5.3 and 5.4
release servers for mysql causes the process to hang when a kill is
issued and become unkillable even with -9 and the only way to recover
is reboot the server. The problem is not on 6.0 and 5.4-STABLE. So
this would suggest to me libthr is updated in the 5.x branch.
Will libthr in 5.5 be the same as in 6.0 or does the 6.x version still
Should I contact the mysql port maintainer and ask him to add a
warning to the port concerning libthr on 5.4 release and older?
Out of 2 servers which I use mysql on one is been upgraded to 6.1 when
its released but the other will remain 5.x for the reason I cant
afford to take chances something wont work right after upgrading a
major version, however if the first server upgrades without any
serious glitches I will consider it for the future on the 2nd server.
