Thanks very much, downgrading libmysql15off and reinstalling 
mysql-5.0-[client|server] solved my problem.  Uck, I wasted hours 
chasing heisenbugs - should have asked you folks sooner...

I won't mark this issue resolved, as it is still possible to 
accidentally trigger it by upgrading to mysql packages in experimental; 
I'll tag it experimental instead.
