i'm fairly certain this is due to #384192, in which mysql accidentally
changed their ABI without bumping the symbol versions, which can cause
all kinds of problems.

could you try downgrading to a version of libmysqlclient15off < 5.0.24?
if not you could try the latest version that hit unstable yesterday or
the day before?  i'm fairly certain the former will fix the problem,
though if that's not possible i don't know that the latter will fix
the problem without recompiling php4, which should happen as soon
as the apache packaging team fixes an unrelated bug.
