found 545741 5.5.17-4
I have been able to confirm this by
1.) going inside a schroot
2.) chmod 755 /tmp
3.) installing mysql-5.5 etc.
The log file is attached. However I note that the restrictive
permissions leaked outside the chroot. Since Debian is clearly not meant
have a /tmp where only root can create or delete files, I suspect that
this is rather a bug in the VPS.
However before I mark this "wontfix" I think it is worthy of some more
investigation. I wonder if the files being created should rather be in
/run for example.
