FS#3818 - MySQL 5.0.18 doesn't accept TCP connections

Attempts to connect to MySQL 5.0.18 using TCP always give this error: "ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query". Connections worked with the previous package, version 5.0.17. The config has remained unchanged. Only TCP connections are affected. Connections using Unix sockets worked before, and still work now.

2 ways to duplicate this error:
1) mysql --user=user --password=pswd --protocol=TCP --host=A.B.C.D --port=3306 db_name
2) Try to access MySQL with JDBC. TCP is required for JDBC connections, Unix sockets aren't supported.

5.0.18-1 enabled tcpwrappers. You have


in your /etc/hosts.allow?
