The one thing that kind of grabbed people's interest was the flood of "connection dropped" messages that mysql will log if I enable the "log warnings" option. On other mysql installations I can leave this on and I just see the occasional error. If I point vpopmail at a db with the logging enabled, it just scrolls errors like mad.
Is there any way to find out what program was responsible for creating the connection that was dropped? Can you add additional logging to find out what queries are made on the dropped connections before they get dropped? If there's a pattern, we might be able to track down the offending program and fix it.
