Actually, instead of using `chkconfig --del` which means you can no longer 
manage the service with chkconfig, the better option would be

`chkconfig --level 12345 mysql off`

which simply tells the system 'unless I (the admin) explicitly run chkconfig 
to change it in the future, never run the mysql service at boot', but it is 
still controlled by chkconfig.

I have never had a heartbeat controlled service problem after doing this.
