Password hasing is one, Dreamweaver incompatibilities is another one:
Technotes from MySQL:
An upgrade to MySQL 4.1 can cause a compatibility issue for applications that use PASSWORD() to generate passwords for their own purposes.

These differences make authentication in 4.1.0 incompatible with that of releases that follow it.

Technotes from Macromedia:
Which version of PHP / MySQL do you use, as MySQL 4.1 handles the users differently this might break the Dreamweaver server model implementation.

We develop extensions for building web applications in Macromedia Dreamweaver, and we would love to recomend your bundle installation when Mac users come to us and ask us how to set a development enviroment on their Macs.
We usually recomend to download everything from the official pages and configure it themselves. But we can see how XAMPP would make this faster and painless. For example on windows we usually recomend appservnetwork.net and we point with the specific safe
version which right now is AppServ 2.4.1.
