For whatever reason you need to reinstall/ clean MySQL. Here are the spots:

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/mysql*
sudo rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM
sudo rm -rf /Library/PreferencePanes/My*
rm -rf ~/Library/PreferencePanes/My*
sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/mysql*
sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/MySQLStartupItem.pkg/
sudo rm -rf /var/db/receipts/com.mysql.mysql*
sudo rm -rf /var/db/receipts/com.mysql.mysqlstartup*

edit /etc/hostconfig and remove the line MYSQLCOM=-YES-

Launchctl
launchctl list|grep mysql

remove anything found.
