Changes in MySQL 5.1.58 (July 5th, 2011)

   Bugs fixed:

     * InnoDB Storage Engine: If the server crashed while an XA
       transaction was prepared but not yet committed, the
       transaction could remain in the system after restart, and
       cause a subsequent shutdown to hang. (Bug #11766513, Bug

     * Partitioning: When executing a row-ordered retrieval index
       merge, the partitioning handler used memory from that
       allocated for the table, rather than allocated to the
       query, causing table object memory not to be freed until the
       table was closed. (Bug #11766249, Bug #59316)

     * Replication: When mysqlbinlog was invoked using
       --base64-output=decode-row and --start-position=pos, (where
       pos is a point in the binary log past the format description
       log event), a spurious error of the type shown here was

malformed binlog: it does not contain any Format_description_log_event...

       However, since there is nothing unsafe about not printing the
       format description log event, the error has been removed for
       this case. (Bug #12354268)

     * Replication: Typographical errors appeared in the text of
       several replication error messages. (The word "position" was
       misspelled as "postion".) (Bug #11762616, Bug #55229)

     * After the fix for Bug#11889186, MAKEDATE() arguments with a
       year part greater than 9999 raised an assertion. (Bug

     * An assertion could be raised due to a missing NULL value check
       in Item_func_round::fix_length_and_dec(). (Bug #12392636)

     * In debug builds on Solaris, an assertion was raised if a
       reverse IP lookup with gethostbyaddr_r() failed. (Bug

     * MySQL did not build if configured with both --with-debug and
       --with-libedit. (Bug #12329909)

     * A problem introduced in 5.1.57 caused very old (MySQL 4.0)
       clients to be unable to connect to the server. (Bug #61222,
       Bug #12563279)

     * Using CREATE EVENT IF NOT EXISTS for an event that already
       existed and was enabled caused multiple instances of the event
       to run. (Bug #61005, Bug #12546938)

     * The incorrect max_length value for YEAR values could be used
       in temporary result tables for UNION, leading to incorrect
       results. (Bug #59343, Bug #11766270)

     * In Item_func_in::fix_length_and_dec(), a Valgrind warning for
       uninitialized values was corrected. (Bug #59270, Bug

     * In ROUND() calculations, a Valgrind warning for uninitialized
       memory was corrected. (Bug #58937, Bug #11765923)

     * Valgrind warnings caused by comparing index values to an
       uninitialized field were corrected. (Bug #58705, Bug

     * LOAD DATA INFILE errors could leak I/O cache memory. (Bug
       #58072, Bug #11765141)

     * For LOAD DATA INFILE, multibyte character sequences could be
       pushed onto a stack too small to accommodate them. (Bug
       #58069, Bug #11765139)

     * An embedded client would abort rather than issue an error
       message if it issued a TEE command (\T file_name) and the
       directory containing the file did not exist. This occurred
       because the wrong error handler was called. (Bug #57491, Bug

     * In debug builds, Field_new_decimal::store_value() was subject
       to buffer overflows. (Bug #55436, Bug #11762799)

     * On Linux, the mysql client built using the bundled libedit did
       not read ~/.editrc. (Bug #49967, Bug #11757855)

     * The optimizer sometimes incorrectly processed HAVING clauses
       for queries that did not also have an ORDER BY clause. (Bug
       #48916, Bug #11756928)

     * PROCEDURE ANALYZE() could leak memory for NULL results, and
       could return incorrect results if used with a LIMIT clause.
       (Bug #48137, Bug #11756242)

     * On some platforms, the Incorrect value: xxx for column yyy at
       row zzz error produced by LOAD DATA INFILE could have an
       incorrect value of zzz. (Bug #46895, Bug #11755168)

     * In MySQL 5.1 and up, if a table had triggers that used syntax
       supported in 5.0 but not 5.1, the table became unavailable.
       Now the table is marked as having broken triggers. (Bug
       #45235, Bug #11753738)

     * An attempt to install nonexistent files during installation
       was corrected. (Bug #43247, Bug #11752142)

     * On FreeBSD 64-built builds of the embedded server, exceptions
       were not prevented from propagating into the embedded
       application. (Bug #38965, Bug #11749418)
