I do hope that the adonadi people will fix this problem. It would be a a very 
bad solution if they think they can hijack other demons. The mysqld is not 
there for KDE sole purpose. If KDE try to stop mysql it is the same as never 
to start KDE at all but use something else. KDE more and more seems to become 
a MS virus. An operating system not care or  recognising anything but itself.
