Looking at the stack trace, I suspect this is a stack overflow, caused my too small a stacksize when building the binaries.  Will confirm it shortly.

On my server which is NW65SP4, I see the following message when trying to run mysql_upgrade (but no crash):

Loading module MYSQL_UPGRADE.NLM                                       
SERVER-5.70-1948:   Module name is MYSQL_UP.NLM not MYSQL_UPGRADE.NLM  
  no description                                                       
  Version 1.00   2006 October 3                                        
  MYSQL_UPGRAD does not have any XDC data                              
  Uni-Processor NLM                                                    
Module MYSQL_UPGRADE.NLM load status OK                                
Can't find program 'sys:\mysql\bin\mysqlcheck'                         
Please restart with --basedir=mysql-install-directory

So, this is a bug anyway, since it should look for mysqlcheck.nlm
In fact, it's a reincarnation of bug #20950 for Netware.

As a workaround, please run mysqlcheck and perl mysql_fix_privilege_tables.pl manually.

Change is, or will be in, 5.1.14, 5.0.32 and 4.1.23
[21 Dec 2006 21:58] Paul Dubois
Noted in 4.1.23, 5.0.32, 5.1.14 changelogs.

The stack size for NetWare binaries was increased
to 128KB to prevent problems caused by insufficient
stack size.

  netware/*.def  :  Allocate 128K stack for all executables (bug#23504)
[7 Jun 2007 15:12] Joerg Bruehe
The above changeset is pushed into the 4.1.23 build,
so the stack sizes are increased in this version as well.

The earlier claim about a push to 4.1 was wrong.

Strictly speaking, this bug never was applicable to 4.1, 
because "mysql_upgrade" starts to exist with 5.0 -
but the stack size may be relevant with other tools.
