Description:
Version: '5.1.23-beta-debug'  socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock'  port: 3306  yes
mysqld: protocol.cc:831: virtual bool Protocol_text::store(const char*, unsigned int, CHARSET_INFO*): Assertion `field_types == 0 || field_types[field_pos] == MYSQL_TYPE_DECIMAL || field_types[field_pos] == MYSQL_TYPE_BIT || field_types[field_pos] == MYSQL_TYPE_NEWDECIMAL || (field_types[field_pos] >= MYSQL_TYPE_ENUM && field_types[field_pos] <= MYSQL_TYPE_GEOMETRY)' failed.

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...

explain extended select 1 from information_schema.TABLES;
