The main.information_schema_chmod test attempts to change the permissions on the mysqltest directory, but the command to restore sane permissions fails.  This causes failure for every single subsequent test which is unable to use the test directory.

main.information_schema_chmod  [ fail ]

ERROR: mysqltest returned unexpected code 139, it has probably crashed

Thank you for the report.

I can not repeat described behaviour as regular user I guild sources as. Please indicate accurate version of OS where bug is repeatable and provide ouptut of `ls -la /PATH/TO/SOURCES/mysql-test`

Sorry, looks like this one is a red herring, the real problem is mysqltest_embedded segfaults on Linux 64bit and PPC machines, which is what causes this test to fail mid way through and break the permissions.

I'm currently trying to get more information from a debug build to track down the bug.

Thank you for the feedback.

Verified as described on regular Linux.

To repeat `./mysql-test-run.pl --embedded-server information_schema_chmod` is enough

Has this been resolved? I am having the same issues on a debian 5.0 64 bit machine.
