Bug Description

I've just noticed my mysql server was not running after having upgraded to jaunty a couple of weeks ago. I could call /etc/init.d/mysql start but nothing 'started'.

Using the Synaptic Package Manager I saw mysql 5 was not installed. I installed the mysql server package and used phpmyadmin to see my existing databases were in fact intact. This was not expected behaviour not sure if it is design-intent and can't recall if the upgrader asked me any questions related to mysql.
