RPMpre-install script assumed that the
PIDfile was always located in the
datadir. If it was not, during installation, wrong assumption could be made if the server was running or not. Bug fixed #1201896.
SHOW GRANTSdisplayed only the privileges granted explicitly to the named account. Other effectively available privileges were not displayed. Fixed by implementing Extended SHOW GRANTS feature. Bug fixed #1354988 (upstream #53645).
