Upgraded a server to MySQL 5.0.27.

The upgraded mysqld-nt.exe does basically work, but crashes every ~ 10 minutes.

There's nothing in the MySQL error log except for the "server starting" message.  The server does accept queries, so it should have had time enough to set up it's exception handling.  Either there's no SEH exception handler in MySQL, or it's failing in this particular instance.

Either way, the exception reaches the operation system, which logs the following in the NT event log:

Event Type:	Information
Event Source:	DrWatson
Event ID:	4097

How to repeat:
Travel to Denmark,
sit down next to this server,
issue "NET START MySQL",
drink a cup of coffee.

Suggested fix:
Not sure what the actual problem is.

Hi David, according to .map file, this function in opt_range.cpp crashed because next_arg was NULL.

SEL_ARG *SEL_ARG::last()
  SEL_ARG *next_arg=this;
  if (!next_arg->right)
    return 0;					// MAYBE_KEY
  while (next_arg->right != &null_element)
  return next_arg;

So, it could be a single query causing a crash.  Would you enable general query log (add "log=general_query.log" to my.ini) for those 10 mins and and catch the offending query?

Thanks, please upload output of:

show create table `log`;
show table status like 'log';
check table `log`;

I have repeated a crash, but used 5.0.26 on linux.  Assigning to myself to make proper standalone testcase.

crashes:       DELETE FROM `t1` WHERE NOT (c1 IN ('-1', '0'));
doesn't crash: DELETE FROM `t1` WHERE NOT (c1 IN (-1, 0));

so it appears to be single quotes causing a problem.

Perhaps bug #19618 was not completely fixed.
