Setting MySQL variables

I have below lines in my my.cnf file:


set-variable = table_cache=1200
set-variable = connect_timeout=12
set-variable = wait_timeout=7200

When I re-start MySQL, it picks up all the variables correctly, except wait_timeout. MySQL version is 4.1 and running on Linux.

Cannot figure why it is not picking up the wait_timeout.
I agree. Here's the link:
