See the statement in how to repeat. It causes a server crash

The partiton clause attemps (incorectly) to resolve against tables from the select clause.

How to repeat:

drop table if exists t1,t2;
create table t2 (b int);

create table t1 (b INT) 
) select * from t2;

Suggested fix:

  Fix for bug #29444: crash with partition refering to table in create-select
  Problem: creating a partitioned table during name resolution for the 
  partition function we search for column names in all parts of the
  CREATE TABLE query. It is superfluous (and wrong) sometimes.
  Fix: launch name resolution for the partition function against
  the table we're creating.

Am I correct to assume that referring to a column from a different table in PARTITION BY ... is now checked for and disallowed?

[19 Oct 2007 6:35] Mikael Ronström
The bug was that by mistake fields from the table in the select part of
was allowed in the partition function. This was a side effect of the fix_fields.
This fix ensures that only fields from the created table are allowed in the partition
function, all other fields will be reported as a non-existing field.
