I see two ways to fix this:

- use skip-networking instead bind-address (Christian, can you give me 
  some details about the change in 4.1.9-2?)
- check in mysql-server's preinst script if the lo interface is up, and
  abort installation of the package with a meaningful warning if it's 

By the way, I'm still unable to reproduce this bug, the mysql-server
package installs fine on my systems even with the lo interface down.
