Description:
If I try to insert into a partitioned blackhole table, crash.

How to repeat:
mysql> create table tb (s1 int) engine=blackhole partition by hash (s1);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)

mysql> insert into tb values (0);
ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

I was able to reproduce this using a fresh clone of 5.1

This error seems to be due to trying to lock the table (file) and not handling a lock properly for a blackhole type table since there is no file for it. (theory). This is what I get using gdb/ddd:

Dump of assembler code from 0x852bf1c to 0x852c01c:
   0x0852bf1c <safe_mutex_lock+10>:        cmpl   $0x0,0x30(%eax)
   0x0852bf20 <safe_mutex_lock+14>:        jne    0x852bf57 <safe_mutex_lock+69>
   0x0852bf22 <safe_mutex_lock+16>:        mov    0x10(%ebp),%eax
   0x0852bf25 <safe_mutex_lock+19>:        mov    %eax,0xc(%esp)

(gdb)

The code line where it segfaults:

nt safe_mutex_lock(safe_mutex_t *mp,const char *file, uint line)
{
 int error;
 if (!mp->file)   <---
