MySQL connection errors after migration

Hello,

I have a 3.4a version of alfresco on my test machine working correctly. Now I'm trying to migrate that test machine and the stuff seems to work, but I have some mysql connection problems

I tested the mysql connection and the database - when I poll it from a test jsp page, I can open the database and get the data. But when I try to fire up alfresco application, I get the "Connection timed out" exception (log attached below). I've tried setting up the same IP's, hostnames and everything, but it still doesn't work.
Here are my db settings from alfresco-global.properties:
db.username=alf
db.password=alfresco
#db.driver=org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver
db.driver=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
db.url=jdbc:mysql://127.0.0.1:3306/alf2?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=utf-8

I tried altering the hostname, omit the port, connect to an emtpy database and everything, but it doesn't seem to work.

I've enabled the mysql log and from that I can see that alfresco doesn't even get to try.

So my guess is that it's trying to connect to something else, somewhere.
Does anybody know what I could be missing?
Where else can I set the connection properties details?
Some XML or resource file?
