My badness, in jumping to the wrong conclusion.

This is what happened.

I was at the database part of the install, creating the Koha database.
The connection to mysql failed (see email regarding "Installation bug
regarding creating Koha database" using IP ... which has been
submitted to tge Koha bugs database).

I left the script running at that point (Ctrl C did not stop it)
and entered another shell.

At that point, .my.cnf was changed to a temporary copy.
I wrongly concluded that the original was lost.

When I terminated the install script with kill, the cleanup
did restore .my.cnf.

Sorry to raise this on the Koha user's list.
