This part is ok.

Eric> The second removes a rm command that deleted the sock file. This could delete the sock file for another instance when MYSQL_UNIX_PORT environment variable is set.

What you removed was:

- rm -f $safe_mysql_unix_port "$pid_file" # Some extra safety

You can't remove the delation of "$pid_file";

Without that will not properly.

There is one problem with not removing the socket port:
- If you don't do that, mysqld will not restart from a crash as the
old socket file will stop the server from starting.

Eric> This caused problems for me because I use a non-standard installation. Upgrading the MariaDB-Server rpm would delete the sock file from my relocated mysqld leaving it orphaned.

If you specify "socket" in your my.cnf, this should never go wrong.

If you don't specify "socket" and you have another MySQL server
running, your new server should not start as the socket file would be

Can you please describe in litte more detail how your installation
looked like where you got conflicting socket names?

I will wait with applying your crash-script option until we find a
solution for the above.
