Start 5.1 server with /etc/my.cnf as
/home/nidhi/mysql-builds/mysql-5.1>bin/mysqld_safe --defaults-file=/etc/my.cnf &
where /etc.cnf is
port = 3307
basedir = /home/nidhi/mysql-builds/mysql-5.1
datadir = /home/nidhi/mysql-builds/mysql-5.1/var
default-table-type = MyIsam

Manage server instances -> New
server1 -> 
connection1 (TCP/IP,, 3307, root, nidhi)
System Profile -> Leave the defaults (/etc/my.cnf)

Server administration -> server1 -> ok -> opens the server access tab 

Server startup tab -> shows server is 'running' -> Stop server -> asks super user password -> given 

doesn't stop the server.

How to repeat:
As mentioned in the description.

Which stop command did you use?

Did you use mysqld or mysqld_safe for starting the server?

If you used mysqld_safe then you need to kill this process before the mysqld process. Because otherwise, when you just kill mysqld then mysqld_safe immediately will restart mysqld.

Means when you just use mysqladmin shutdown on mysqld_safe the server always immediately get restarted.
