iirc, mysql avoids syslogd and keeps a log of its activities in
/usr/local/mysql/var/HOSTNAME.err where HOSTNAME represents the hostname
(as returned by the hostname command) of your machine. this is most
likely a good place to look for further clues. there may also be
further information in /var/log.
