Description:
Crash when running the test suite "embedded":

=====
main.change_user               [ fail ]

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

Stopping All Servers
Restoring snapshot of databases
Resuming Tests
=====

How to repeat:
Run the suite using
   ./mysql-test-run.pl --embedded-server

Suggested fix:
Check whether that tests uses functionality which is not available in the embedded server.

If it does, change the test so that it is skipped in embedded runs.

If the embedded server should provide that functionality, ...

  Bug#31850 Test crashes in "embedded" serve
  
  The mysql_change_user commit fails to properly update the database pointer
  when no database is selected, leading to "use after free" errors. The same
  happens on the user privilege pointer in the thread security context.
  
  The solution is to properly reset and update the database and the user pointer
  so that it doesn't point to freed memory.

  when no database is selected, leading to "use after free" errors. The same
  happens on the user privilege pointer in the thread security context.
  
  The solution is to properly reset and update the database name. Also update
  the user_priv pointer so that it doesn't point to freed memory.

Noted in 5.1.23, 6.0.4 changelogs.

For libmysqld applications, handling of mysql_change_user() calls
left some pointers improperly updated, leading to server crashes.
