Just finished upgrading to 4.5.1, and can no longer use KMail. This makes
me deeply sad. The problem appears to be akonadi not starting. I get the
following messages when running akonadictl start:

I assume there is something wrong with my MySQL installation, but not
being a database guy, I have no idea. mysqld is running. Any help out
