You mentioned an interesting point. I am running on FC3 with mysql
4.1.9 (also with the compat package) and everything is stable. One
exception that I noticed is that when I install from the RPMs provided
by, I don't get a "my.cnf" file anywhere. I see that you
re-compiled from the source, but I'm wondering if you might have an
idea why that is happening to me?

Can you show the contents of the default my.cnf file that was supplied
with yours?

Thanks, David
