Description:
I start mysqld with --lower-case-table-names=1.
I create tables whose names contain the Turkish Capital Letter I With Dot ( 'İ ').
The name  İ is okay.
The name  İİ is not okay. If I say SHOW CREATE TABLE İİ, I see
CREATE TABLE `iiİ` ...

How to repeat:
Start mysqld with --lower-case-table-names.

mysql> SET NAMES utf8;

mysql> CREATE DATABASE db5;
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> USE db5;

mysql> CREATE TABLE İ (s1 int);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)

Thank you for a problem report. Please, send the results of:

SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'char%';

from the mysql command line client, and results of

echo $LANG

from the shell.

Good questions. I should have said these things in my original posting.

The shell says:
pgulutzan@linux:~> echo $LANG
en_US.UTF-8

SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'char%' says:
mysql> SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'char%';

It doesn't matter that character-set-server=latin1. If I start mysqld with
--default-character-set=utf8, I still get the problem.

Verified just as described with 5.1.12-BK on Linux:

suse:/home/openxs/dbs/5.1 # bin/mysql -uroot test

You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

  Bug#20404: SHOW CREATE TABLE fails with Turkish I
  
  Problem: SHOW CREATE TABLE printed garbage in table
  name for tables having TURKISH I
  (i.e. LATIN CAPITABLE LETTER I WITH DOT ABOVE)
  when lower-case-table-name=1.
  
  Reason: In some cases during lower/upper conversion in utf8,
  the result string can be shorter the original string
  (including the above letter). Old implementation of caseup_str()
  and casedn_str() didn't handle the result length properly,
  assuming that length cannot change.
  
  This fix changes the result type of cs->cset->casedn_str()
  and cs->cset->caseup_str() from VOID to UINT, to return
  the result length, as well as put '\0' terminator on a 
  proper place.
  
  Also, my_caseup_str_utf8() and my_casedn_str_utf8() were 
  rewritten not to use strlen() for performance purposes.
  It was done with help of adding of new functions - my_utf8_uni_no_range()
  and my_uni_utf8_no_range() - for null terminated strings.

Setting to "Patch approved", as got "ok" from two developers.

With lower_case_table_names set to 1, SHOW CREATE TABLE printed
incorrect output for table names containing Turkish I (IN CAPITAL 
LETTER I WITH DOT ABOVE).
