D.1.1. Changes in MySQL 5.1.61 (10 January, 2012)

   Bugs Fixed

     * InnoDB Storage Engine: Issuing INSERT...ON DUPLICATE KEY
       statements for InnoDB tables from concurrent threads could
       cause a deadlock
       dlock), particularly with the INSERT...ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE
       form. The fix avoids deadlocks caused by the same row being
       accessed by more than one transaction. Deadlocks could still
       occur when multiple rows are inserted and updated
       simultaneously by different transactions in inconsistent
       order; those types of deadlocks require the standard error
       handling on the application side, of re-trying the
       transaction. (Bug #11759688, Bug #52020)

     * An incorrect InnoDB assertion could cause the server to halt.
       This issue only affected debug builds. The assertion
       referenced the source file btr0pcur.ic and the variable
       cursor->pos_state. (Bug #13358468)

     * The handle_segfault() signal-handler code in mysqld could
       itself crash due to calling unsafe functions. (Bug #54082, Bug

     * ARCHIVE tables with NULL columns could cause server crashes or
       become corrupt under concurrent load. (Bug #51252, Bug

     * Enabling myisam_use_mmap could cause the server to crash. (Bug
       #48726, Bug #11756764)

     * Concurrent access to ARCHIVE tables could cause corruption.
       (Bug #42784, Bug #11751793)
