OK, it's definitely not a MySQL 5.5 issue.  I upgraded to MySQL 5.5 and 
was able to create an initial database using mythtv-setup from 
0.24-fixes and unstable.  I even tried 0.24-fixes from before the MySQL 
5.5 fixes (which went in on Apr 16), but still using MySQL 5.5, and it 
was still able to create the initial DB.  (Regardless, any user who has 
MySQL 5.5 /must/ install a version of MythTV that has MySQL 5.5 
support--0.24-fixes or unstable from Apr 17 or later.)

Therefore, it must be some problem caused by the configuration.  I'd 
like to see a MySQL my.cnf (usually, /etc/my.cnf or /etc/mysql/my.cnf) 
from a system that had this issue.
