Description:
The value of the sql_big_selects setting isn't shown in SHOW VARIABLES output. Workaround is to use SELECT @@sql_big_selects .

Reported for Solaris 9 with MySQL 5.0.18. Reproduced on XP with 4.1.15, 5.0.18 and 5.1.7.

How to repeat:
SHOW VARIABLES or SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'sql_big_selects' . Compare to SELECT @@sql_big_selects which does show it.

Suggested fix:
Add to the output of SHOW VARIABLES.
