Description:
In the event schedule clause, where perhaps a literal
timestamp is expected, I enter "(SELECT ...)". Crash.

How to repeat:
mysql> CREATE EVENT e_53 ON SCHEDULE AT (select s1 from ttx)  DO DROP TABLE t;
ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

  Cleanup patch for handling of subselects in commands which cannot
  handle them.
  
  Problem:
  CREATE|ALTER EVENT, HANDLER READ, KILL, Partitioning uses `expr` from the
  parser. This rule comes with all the rings and bells including subqueries.
  However, these commands are not subquery safe. For this reason there are two
  fuse checks in the parser. They were checking by command id. CREATE EVENT
  should forbid subquery is the fix for
  bug#16394 Events: Crash if schedule contains SELECT
  The fix has been incorporated as part of the patch for WL#3337 (Event scheduler
  new architecture).
  
  Solution:
  A new flag was added to LEX command_forbids_subselect. The fuse checks were
  changed. The commands are responsible to set the value to true whenever
  they can't handle subselects.

Fixed in 5.1.12

Fix for bug#16394 "Events: Crash if schedule contains SELECT"
  
Parsing of CREATE/ALTER EVENT statement was crashing because of early
initialization done during parsing, instead in the after parsing phase.
Moreover, we don't want SUBqueries in CREATE/ALTER EVENT therefore we
disable them, though it is possible to make them work. It can be emulated
inside SP with a cursor and SP variable (CREATE/ALTER EVENT can still
accept variables as values).
