Description:
SELECT statements with a BLOB or TEXT field in the selected
field list and a WHERE condition doing a primary key lookup
on a VARCHAR primary key produce empty result sets.

Any of the following makes the problem go away:
- remove the BLOB/TEXT field from the field list
- use a regular UNIQUE index on the VARCHAR field
  instead of making it the PRIMARY KEY
- use CHAR(n) instead of VARCHAR(n) for the PK

How to repeat:
see attached test case

Fixed in 5.0.23, not .22 as this was a security hotfix release only.

Re-opening this bug as something similar is happening with 5.1.14.
Using following test case, you get an error like:
  ERROR 1032 (HY000) at line 14: Can't find record in 't1'
Modifying the TEXT field to VARCHAR is a work-around.

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `t1`;
CREATE TABLE `t1` (
  `id` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `tag` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `doc` text NOT NULL,
  `type` varchar(150) NOT NULL,
  `modified` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=ndbcluster DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;

INSERT INTO t1 VALUES ('sakila',1,'Some text goes here','text',CURRENT_TIMESTAMP);
SELECT id, tag, doc, type, modified FROM t1 WHERE id IN ('flipper','orka');

The 5.0 fix was documented in the 5.0.23 changelog; when the the 5.0.22 security-fix release was made, all other bugfix entries were simply moved to the 5.0.23 changelog.
