I create a table with a partition by key with a
CHAR/VARCHAR column. I try an ORed search on the 
(empty) table. Crash.

How to repeat:
mysql> create table tzz (s1 varchar(15)) partition by key (s1);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.10 sec)

mysql> select * from tzz where s1 = 0 or s1 is null;
ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

The crash doesn't occur if one makes 0 a string constant:

mysql> select * from tzz where s1 = '0' or s1 is null;
Empty set (1.16 sec)

The fix has been pushed into 5.1.12 tree.
Notes for the changelog:
The bug was that mysqld would crash when one tries to execute queries with WHERE clauses in form 
"tbl.partitioning_integer_field = 'some-character-string' OR
where table tbl is partitioned, and [sub]partitioning function uses partitioning_integer_field.
