It's not my choice. Latest MySQL binary distribution ver. 4.1.12 uses
/tmp/mysqld.sock as a default in all configuration files.
Also in my old freeradius 1.0.2 installation also uses /tmp/mysqld.sock

/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock as workaround.
I solved problem changing sock pid file path in /etc/my.cnf. I think the
same must be configurable in freeradius.
