If one has a table partitioned by LIST, attempt to insert a value less then lowest 
list constant will cause crash.

How to repeat:

create table t4 (a int not null, b int not null) partition by LIST (a+b) (
  partition p0 values in (12),
  partition p1 values in (14)
insert into t4 values (10,1);

And get this:

(gdb) p/x list_index
  $2 = 0x1fffffff

i.e. it walks over left bound of list_array.

Fixed by implementation of  WL#2985 "Partition pruning".
The fix has been pushed into 5.1.5 tree.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been committed to our
source repository of that product and will be incorporated into the
next release.

If necessary, you can access the source repository and build the latest
available version, including the bugfix, yourself. More information 
about accessing the source trees is available at

Additional info:

Note: The behaviour in such cases is now to return ERROR 1500 (HY000): Table has no partition for value %s. (Verified with clone from latest 5.1)

Documented fix in 5.1.5 changelog. Closed.
