Yes, I have files in "/var/lib/mysql/":

-rw-r--r-- 1 mysql mysql        0 2008-08-15 12:59 debian-5.0.flag
-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 10485760 2008-09-01 22:06 ibdata1
-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql  5242880 2008-09-01 22:06 ib_logfile0
-rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql  5242880 2008-08-12 15:24 ib_logfile1
drwx------ 2 mysql mysql     4096 2008-08-15 12:59 mysql
-rw------- 1 mysql mysql        7 2008-08-12 15:24 mysql_upgrade_info

"mysql" is my database itself.  My personal workaround is that after
experiencing this bug, I run

sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-server-5.0 && sudo apt-get install

Of course, I answer the dialog whether I want to remove the database
itself, too, with "no".
