MySQL status check fails when MySQL is running fine

running "/usr/bin/mysqladmin" status

The above is emailed every check interval on my Fedora Core 4 Virtualmin test box. The status reads fine when viewing the page--but this gets mailed out anyway. It doesn't happen on the RHEL 4.1 box, so I don't know quite what to make of it. The status lines look pretty much the same to me, but I might be looking at it too hard.
