Because he has a non-standard setup. In case you didn't recognize: 
stopping mysqld also fixes his problem! He installed some software that 
affects threading and it's likely other things (that he didn't notice yet) 
are also affected. It's still weird, though. If you do not overwrite any 
base files you won't hit this problem.
