Thanks, Sergey, that's perfect.

I still think something should be done about the mere presence of LIMIT being able to completely throw off the join optimizer. The join optimizer should be hardwired to treat a statement with both ORDER BY and LIMIT clauses the same as the statement with just the ORDER BY clause, the reason being that when ORDER BY is present, in the general case, there is no way to use LIMIT to short-circuit the query (whereas when ORDER BY is absent, you could quit the query earlier as soon as you have enough rows to satisfy the LIMIT clause).
