After system starts, the MySQL preference pane will indicate that the MySQL server is running (green text) when in fact the server was not instructed to start (do not start MySQL server on startup). The Gear image on the left-side of the display correctly indicates server status.

Clicking the "Start MySQL Server" button will start the server correctly. The Gear image changes to reflect the now-running server, the text remains the same: the MySQL Server Instance is _running_. Clicking "Stop MySQL Server" button will correctly shut-down the server, correctly change the gear icon, and correctly change the status text to red "stopped." Subsequent server start-stop cycles will reflect the change correctly in the Preference Pane.

How to repeat:
Rebooting the machine will start the process over again: Gear image is "good" while textual description is incorrect.

Suggested fix:
Should be fairly straightforward: Whatever makes the gear image change is what should be used to determine the textual description of the server instance.
