Erroneous mysql startup script on various cpanel servers

About 2 weeks ago we had a problem with mysql not starting correctly.

After investigating many things we found the problem was the mysql init.d script which had something wrong. We then put a stock mysql startup script and it worked perfectly.

We were 90% sure that cpanel had something to do with this because it happened the day after a cPanel update (on release tree), but Dan said that cPanel does not modify that script.

Well, today the exact same thing happened on another cPanel server I have. I did the same as before, replace the init script, and now it works fine.

Too much coincidence...I think cPanel has got something to do here..maybe the last mysql update had a wrong init script.

Anyone else noticed this?
