I've searched the archives again, and some folks suggest deleting
the /var/lib/mysql directory as a fix. So I shutdown mysql,
uninstalled mysql (server and clients), did a
rm -rf /var/lib/mysql

Reinstalled mysql, recreated my database, re-granted,
and even put setup a /etc/my.cnf with

Still no luck, if I don't allow writes to /root/tmp
from the mysql user, I can't do simple things like a
desc table;

I have to be doing something simple wrong, and would greatly
appreciate any pointers.
