Mysql is a immortal :(
Authored by: eronald on Apr 20, '01 08:19:24PM

Mysql on OS X is ugly. Theoretically you should be able to shut it down cleanly with the
shutdown command from within mysqladmin, but that doesn't sem to work.
I have seen it written that the only clean way to deal with the problem is to
keep the shell which launched the safe daemon, interrupt it with CTL-Z, do
a ps and kill the spawned daemon brood, then kill the broodmaster.

Please correct me if i am wrong. I am waiting for a package which one can have
real confidence in. I have installed mysql on linux, linux ppc and OS X from original
sources. It integrates nicely into the redhat linux daemon start/stop runlevel scheme,
but i don't know how this issue is handled by Mac OS X.
