... and now having actually read the post on npm.webtools, I think thats
what its likely to be.

The bug report/fix (
looks very similar to this, but it doesn't have a workarround.

So we should probably update the mysql requirements then. Debian stable
has 3.23.49, whilst RH7.1 has .36, 7.2 has .41, and 7.3 has .49.

IOW, keeping .41 as the minimum will let us keep RH7.2 out-of-the-box
requirements. Since we no longer trigger the bug in .44, we should
probably have 3.23.41 as the minimum supported version.
