I was studying reference manual "Spatial Extensions in MySQL". I think I found a mistake on chapter " Creating Geometry Values Using WKB Functions" (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/gis-wkb-functions.html) in two function definitions: 

GeomCollFromWKB(wkb[,srid]) , GeometryCollectionFromWKB(wkt[,srid])
GeomFromWKB(wkb[,srid]) , GeometryFromWKB(wkt[,srid])

Full name functions accepts different format of geometry type(wkt) as first argument than their shorter versions(wkb). I supose that someone was copying definitions from earlier chapter and forgot about changing argument "wkt" to "wkb"

How to repeat:
browse to http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/gis-wkb-functions.html  ;)

Suggested fix:
Simply change "wkt" to "wkb" in:
