several ideas hit me

a) MySQL doesn't handle many concurrent connections well.

	The last 'x connections' report i saw, had x for mysql , 10x for  
pgsql and 500x for oracle.

b) what are you doing with mysql?

	if you're doing some selects / inserts, thats odd
	but if you're relying on some of the 'new' features -- triggers,  
views, referential integrity -- i wouldn't be surprised if you saw  
tons of crashes.  i had super bad luck whenever I tried to use the  
'new' features
