Code-wise, the fix looks easy enough:
struct sigaction old_action;
sigaction (SIGALRM, NULL, &old_action);
/* ... run mysql stuff */
sigaction (SIGALRM, &old_action, NULL);
But it's in the wrong language, so I am at a complete loss as
to where to put it. Ideally, one would fix the mysql library,
but that looks like a lot of work...
