Rob, what the version of mysql do you use?

I have the exact same problem here, using OS X Tiger 10.4.1, MySQL 4.0.24 (MySQL distribution).
I didn't do anything to the config file. I only password protected the root account...

Fixed in 1.0.22.

ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
What can I do ?
