 mysql> show variables like '%partition%';  
  | Variable_name         | Value |
  | have_partition_engine | NO    |

Since partitioning is not an engine, it should not have _engine on it's name.

How to repeat:

 mysql> show variables like '%partition%';

Your MySQL connection id is 1 to server version: 5.1.6-alpha-debug

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
