okay, well i see a few options:

- try and patch nagios source for nagios-mysql at the last minute.
- take our time, keep the rc bug and put the fix in 3.1r1
- have nagios not start by default (at least for nagios-mysql, if
  that's possible)

i don't like the first one, and the third one also requires a
non-trivial amount of code change and affects the other two
versions of nagios which might not have this problem.  so given
this, plus the fact that there's an easy workaround (follow directions
and configure your server), i don't think that the world would end
if this fix didn't make it in in time for sarge.

so that's my 2 cents anyway...
