  I set wait_timeout=30 and interactive_timeout=30 in /etc/my.cnf file. After some time, I use phpmyadmin show the mysql thread ,I found a lot of thread with Time > 30 second.But I kill one thread use phpmyadmin then all thread with time>30 will killed auto.

How to repeat:
   compile mysql in fedora core 1.0 system.
        see Description

Suggested fix:
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 
in the  mysql.server shell file to disable linux NPTL.

I cannot repeat this; after the timeout is exceeded the connection is terminated.

Please check to see if whatever you are using to connect is changing the timeouts.  Alternatively, connect from the mysql command-line client, verify the timeouts and then idle beyond those to see if the connections are properly terminated.
