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.

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...

thd->query at 0x87ec230 = select (group_concat(distinct `col002`)) from t1

How to repeat:
#run this on debug build of mysqld:

drop table if exists t1;
create table `t1` (`col002` bit not null)engine=myisam;
insert into t1 values (),(),();
select (group_concat(distinct `col002`)) from t1;

  Fix for bug #31154: field.h:1649: virtual int Field_bit::cmp(const uchar*, const uchar*): Assertion
  Problem: GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT BIT_FIELD...) uses a tree to store keys;
  which are constructed using a temporary table fields,
  see Item_func_group_concat::setup().
  As a) we don't store null bits in the tree where the bit fields store parts 
  of their data and b) there's no method to properly compare two table records
  we've got problem.
  Fix: convert BIT fields to INT in the temporary table used.

Noted in 5.0.52, 5.1.23 changelogs.

Use of GROUP_CONCAT(DISTINCT bit_column) caused an assertion failure.
