That's MySQL loggging.  It's not Myth logging.  You're probably starting 
mysql with:

mysqld --log=/var/log/mysql/mysql.log

See http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/log-files.html and all it's 
subsections--specifically, 5.12.2 "The General Query Log" ( 
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/log-files.html ).
