Description:
When MySQL was started with:
innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:100M;ibdata2:50m:autoextend

instead of

innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:100M;ibdata2:50M:autoextend

InnoDB was not started with this suppid error message:

060508 15:50:57  mysqld started
060508 15:50:57 [ERROR] InnoDB: syntax error in innodb_data_file_path
060508 15:50:57 [Note] /u00/app/mysql/product/mysql-5.1.9/bin/mysqld: ready for connections.

I lost at least 1 hour at customer site and another our at home to find the reason.

How to repeat:
[mysqld]
innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:100M;ibdata2:50m:autoextend

Suggested fix:
Make size value case insensitive (eas of maintenance?)
