MySQL restore is very slow
It seems there is a bug in MySQL which is causing restores to run very slowly (hours instead of minutes)
The bug is fixed in http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/releasenotes-cs-5-0-67.html
But Ubuntu hasn’t updated yet….
Fortunately this bug is specific to the command line client.
Workaround: use the MySQL Administrator GUI instead.
