The older installations of Debian had mysql logging on. The newer do
not. If you want to turn off the mysql logging, comment out the
line in /etc/mysql/my.cnf containing '/var/log/mysql/mysql.log'.

I got my myth system - containing both backend and frontend - to the
point that the disk shuts down when the system is idle for more than 5
minutes. [ I like quiet systems ;-) ]
