the following sequence of statements crashes the server:

CREATE TABLE test_update ( val integer ) ENGINE = CSV;
INSERT INTO test_update VALUES (5);
INSERT INTO test_update VALUES (10);
INSERT INTO test_update VALUES (11);
INSERT INTO test_update VALUES (10);
UPDATE  test_update SET val=6 WHERE val=10;
DROP TABLE test_update;

I've checked this only with 5.1 but 5.0 should be affected as well (as there is almost no difference in CSV code between 5.0 and 5.1). 

The crash happens in ha_tina::rnd_end(). 
This routine removes "holes" in the file, which occured during updates/deletes. The information about the holes is stored in the chain of records. Looks like this cleanup doesn't work properly when there is more then one link in the chain.

How to repeat:
See sequence of statements above
