I´ve been experimenting with running mysql-4.0 and it still seems to 
have issues
with signal handling. If the database is idle, shutdown works properly but
if there is load on the database, shutting down never happens unless
forced with SIGKILL.

Unfortunately I haven´t had the time to debug this further, just 
updated both mysql and world to see if this would go away but it hasn´t.

I´d be happy to provide more detail if somebody would point me to the 
where to look at.
