I have a same problem ... and read all post here
I 'm not good skill in mysql but have some luck to fix it
my box is freeBSD 6.0 with mysql-server-4.1.18_2

here is my.cnf
port = 3306
socket = /tmp/mysql.sock

# The MySQL server
port = 3306
socket = /tmp/mysql.sock

1.) I disable auto start mysql , by comment '#mysql_enable="YES" ' in /etc/rc.conf and restart freeBSD
2.) I change socket location in my.cnf
socket = /tmp/mysql/mysql.sock in secton [client] and [mysqld] ,
3.) then set -> chown mysql:mysql /tmp/mysql
4.) delete file /tmp/mysq.sock [ if mysq-server still start ... i can not tuch this file ]
5.) start mysql server -> /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start
6.) test connect with mysq -u root -p , input passwrod ..... then error ERROR 2002 (HY000) come again...?#!@!!k
7.) ok , I stop mysql server and check at /tmp/mysql , I saw file mysq.sock was created , but client try to
looking mysql.sock at location /tmp
8.) then I change back socket location in my.cnf -> socket = /tmp/mysql.sock in section [client] and [mysqld]
9.) I start mysql-server again and test connect with mysql ....... and it's ... work :) yes...!
10) I make sure by change back mysql_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf and restart freeBSD ,,, test again and it's work.!

hope this idea can help some of you
