So, there is now a mysql 5.5.23-1.mga1 in Mageia 1 core/updates_testing
for all that want to help testing this ...

Please report on https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5260
if everything still works and also if something broke.

I myself have updated 2 live LAMP servers, and so far no problems...
