With all due respect Craig, it must have done it once, over a year ago, but I 
haven't been using it for anything.  I had yum rpm -e the whole thing which 
took a few other things along with it, then reinstalled the whole maryann.

No change.  If, when it was installed originally, it spit out any such errors, 
I don't after a year, recall them, and selinux has been updated a dozen times 
since the install and my re-enabling selinux.  So lets be realistic and see 
just what the hell we can do about selinux killing mysql instead of your 
usual shoot the messenger attitude.

Cheers, Gene
