ALTER TABLE ... DROP PARTITION hangs if the table was made with BDB.
I have to 'kill -9' to get going again.

How to repeat:
mysql> create table t21 (s1 int) engine=bdb partition by list (s1) (partition p1 values in (0),partition p2 values in (1));
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.05 sec)

mysql> alter table t21 drop partition p1;

I was able to repeat this in 5.1.2bk

Okay, MySQL won't support BDB with partitions.

However, this is still a crashing bug.

Closing this since BDB is removed (not supported) from 5.1.
