[BUG] LiveCode server 4.6.3 fails to connect to MySQL UNIX socket file

Folks,

I've updated the quality centre with a new bug report:

http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9712

As explained in there, LiveCodeServer tries to connect to /tmp/mysql.sock
which is not always the correct location. The mysqld daemon will tell the
client what socket file to use but LiveCode server is not using that file.
LiveCode Server 3.5 works fine but the new 4.6.x series does not.

I call on the users of these lists to vote for this bug report. This bug has
a workaround with symbolic links but this linking can't be done for users on
shared hosts, so I think it qualifies for a severe bug.

Cheers
andre
