This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help diagnose
the problem, but since we have already crashed, something is definitely wrong
and this may fail.

key_buffer_size=8388572
read_buffer_size=131072
max_used_connections=1
max_threads=151
threads_connected=1
It is possible that mysqld could use up to 
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 337620 K
bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...

Resolved stack trace is much more helpful in diagnosing the

Trying to get some variables.
Some pointers may be invalid and cause the dump to abort...
thd->query at 0x8deb988 = create table `t` (
`col001` char (68) not null ,unique key(`col001`(1)),
`col004` char(68) not null , unique key(`col004` )
)engine=innodb
thd->thread_id=1

How to repeat:
drop table if exists `t`;
create table `t` (`col001` char (68) not null ,unique key(`col001`(1)),`col004` char(68) not null , unique key(`col004` ))engine=innodb;

please use a debug build to test it.  non-debug build didn't appear to crash

Shane, Sunny,

the assertion used to be true in old versions of MySQL.

I see that the table has a unique NOT NULL key. Old versions of MySQL would promote that to the internal primary key and number it as key number 0. What has changed?

Regards,

Heikki

  Fix for bug #31137: Assertion failed: primary_key_no == -1 || primary_key_no == 0, 
  file .\ha_innodb.
  
  Problem: if a partial unique key followed by a non-partial one we declare
  the second one as a primary key.
  
  Fix: declaring an unique key as primary, check if it's the first key.
  
  Note: I doubt we can change the order in the sort_keys() in the 5.x
  as some clients may depend on the current behaviour.

Noted in 5.0.54, 5.1.23, 6.0.5 changelogs.

MySQL declares a UNIQUE key as a PRIMARY key if it doesn't have NULL
columns and is not a partial key, and the PRIMARY key must alway be
the first key. However, in some cases, a non-first key could be
reported as PRIMARY, leading to an assert failure by InnoDB. This is
fixed by correcting the key sort order.
