mysql startup script problem

Hello all -

I'm having a small problem with the mysql startup script that ships with
I'm running on RedHat Linux.

It works fine, but I have a backup server that runs a script that passes
these commands remotely through ssh:

(1) ssh dbsys-dc "sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop" (2) ssh dbsys-dc "sudo tar
czpf - /var" > dbsys-dc.var.$(date -I).tgz (3) ssh dbsys-dc "sudo tar czpf
- /db" > dbsys-dc.db.$(date -I).tgz (4) ssh dbsys-dc "sudo
/etc/init.d/mysql start"

Essentially, what I'm doing is stopping the mysql server, then backing up
the directories, the starting the server again.

The problem is that I have additional commands in my backup script
following line 4 above (backup additional filesystems and server, then
write all the tarballs to tape), but the mysql start script does not exit
properly after starting the mysql server, and I come in the next morning
and find that my backup script is stuck on line 4 above, so the rest of my
filesystems and servers never get backed up, nor get written to tape.

If I do a "ps aux" and find the PID for that task and kill it, then the
rest of my script will proceed.

"mysql stop" seems to exit fine -- it's just "mysql start" that seems to
keep the shell locked.

Does anybody know how to fix this or a workaround?

Thanks so much.
