I talk about the upgrade from *sarge* to etch!
The bug report was against the etch version of mysql and the release notes
do not demand a kernel upgrade to 2.6 before even starting the dist-upgrade
from sarge to etch. Chapter 4.1.5 just says that kernel 2.4.1 is required
before upgrading. Etch to lenny is of course no problem.
So depending on what I further find out, I propose a upload to 4.0r1 and/or a
note in the release notes for mysql.
