See also bug#31070 whose testcase no longer crashes. Hence I open new bug.

Stack trace:

How to repeat:
drop table if exists `t1`;
create table `t1` (`c` set('a') character set cp932 collate cp932_bin not null) engine=myisam;
insert into `t1` values (),(),();
select 1 from `t1` order by cast(`c` as char(1));

Seems only cp932 charset causes the crash. See also:

drop table if exists `t1`;
create table `t1` (`c` set('a') character set cp932 collate cp932_japanese_ci not null) engine=myisam;
insert into `t1` values (),(),();
select 1 from `t1` order by cast(`c` as char(1));

Use of the cp932 character set with CAST() in an ORDER BY clause
could cause a server crash.
