Since 4.0.17, if lower-case-table-names==0 and filesystem is case-insensitive, mysqld prints a warning (and sets lower-case-table-names). But this call to sql_print_error() incidentally locks a non-inited mutex (LOCK_error_log) causing mysqld to crash at startup.

How to repeat:
see description

Suggested fix:
Already fixed by Monty in the coming 4.0.18, on Dec 30th 2003.
I document it here to be able to reference it in the manual (a user got this bug)à.
