I use the last_day() function with a zero date.

How to repeat:
mysql> select last_day('0000-00-00');
ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

On Suse 10.0 32-bit the crash not happens or something missed (my.cnf)?

The crash does not happen on my 32-bit (SUSE 10) machine.

I reported this bug with OS = "SUSE 10.0 / 64-bit".

ChangeSet@1.2320, 2006-10-20.

the actual failing code in item_timefunc.cc is:

3102   uint month_idx= ltime->month-1;
3103   ltime->day= days_in_month[month_idx];

the ltime structure passed into the function has all fields set to 0 (probably simply uninitialized due to the invalid date string)

so ltime->month - 1 is 0 - 1 which would be -1, so causing an array underflow in the next line, but as month_idx is defined as unsigned int this ends up being MAX_UNSIGNED. On a 32bit system this still seems to be within accessible range, on a 64bit machines this is outside of the address range though, so causing the crash whereas the behavior on a 32bit box (returning NULL) seems to be right by accident

crashes on 5.0 and 5.1 but *not* 4.1 although the code for the crashing function seems to be identical ... probably gets different data passed into it

Rings a bell...

I think this one will be fixed when bug#22229 is fixed, because LAST_DAY() reuses code of STR_TO_DATE(). Recheck when bug#22229 is fixed.

  Fix for bug #23653: Crash if last_day('0000-00-00')
  As get_arg0_date() in the Item_func_last_day::get_date() returns 
  0000-00-00 date sometimes, we have to check ltime->month for 0 after the call.

Looks fine to me.
[9 Dec 2006 18:26] Paul Dubois
Noted in 4.1.23, 5.0.32, 5.1.15 changelogs.

LAST_DAY('0000-00-00') could cause a server crash.
