Description:
An INNODB table: col1 integer,col2 integer,col3 integer, col1 is primary key, secondary index on (col2,col3)
Up to release 5.1.22 the query 
"SELECT * FROM tbl WHERE col2=x AND col3=y ORDER BY col1" 
worked fine, output from explain said the secondary index was properly used, with an extra filesort to sort the extracted rows.
Starting with rel 5.1.23 (but 5.1.24 too) the same query becomes many times slower, output from explain says the secondary index is not used!! 
The optimizer choose to use the primary index to perform a table scan and so finding the requested rows without the need of an extra filesort.
But this is an extremely slower way of doing the job.
I had to downgrade back to 5.1.22

How to repeat:
CREATE TABLE  `newtable` (
  `col1` int(10) NOT NULL,
  `col2` int(10) ,
  `col3` int(10) ,
  PRIMARY KEY (`col1`),
  KEY `i2` (`col2`,`col3`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB 

Use explain to verify optimizer bahaviour on this query: 
"SELECT * FROM newtable WHERE col2=x AND col3=y ORDER BY col1"

Thank you for a problem report. Please, send a complete test case, with all the data, to repeat the behaviour described. I am not able to repeat it on random data:

Sorry, i apologize for i submitted a too much simplified table structure (my REAL table structure is much more complicated) but this way the problem was lost.
Here is a simplified structure where i can find the problem too:
CREATE TABLE  `testable` (
  `col1` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `col2` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
  `col3` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
  `col4` varchar(5) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`col1`),
  KEY `I2` (`col2`,`col3`,`col4`) USING BTREE
) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=21 
It seems that the presence of the varchar column in the secondary indeex is in some way cause of the problem.
I use query browser and get the wrong access plan even on an empty table

Dear bug verifiers:

Could you try repeating on MySQL 5.1.25? There are chances that this is fixed by fix for BUG#35850.

It seems ok but it is not, try with this modified table:
CREATE TABLE  testable2 (
  `col1` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
  `col2` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
  `col3` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
  `col4` varchar(5) DEFAULT NULL,
  `col5` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`col1`) USING BTREE,
  KEY `I2` (`col2`,`col3`,`col4`) USING BTREE
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;
Just adding col5 to table structure wakeup the bug again.
It seems, but i am not sure, that neither the datatype neither other attributes of col5 have any influence on the bug: the only presence of col5 is sufficient to wakeup the bug
The query:
EXPLAIN EXTENDED SELECT * FROM testable2 where col2=1 and col3=1 order by col1
[27 Jun 2008 17:13] Valeriy Kravchuk
How many rows do you have in that new table? I can repeat your EXPLAIN result on empty table, but this is NOT a bug by itself.
[29 Jun 2008 17:26] Valeriy Kravchuk
Indeed, bug is NOT fixed in a bit more complex cases:

I am having this problem, I believe it's similar to http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=39258.  I have also seen this behavior in the Attachments table of RT, after an OPTIMIZE TABLE was done (the upgrade from 5.0 didn't show any problems, but weeks later after defragmenting, the problem occurred within hours) -- So I believe this is another instance of http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=37680, which is what led me here.

This is extremely important, as not everyone can downgrade (to a *beta* version!!!), and we can't simply unoptimize the table.  I have seen this happen in two very different environments in the past few months, and it seems like anyone can fall victim to this, merely by defragmenting their tables.

This regression imho is caused by the fix for bug #28404.

The problem is that the Innodb table's primary keys (which are clustered) are always considered covering keys.

The change introduced by #28404 results in covering keys that can be used to resolve ORDER BY to be used unconditionally (without cost comparison).
This happens as follows : 

1.the primary keys are considered covering for Innodb : 
13127           bool is_covering= table->covering_keys.is_set(nr) ||
13128                             nr == table->s->primary_key &&
13129                             table->file->primary_key_is_clustered();

3. covering indexes are *always* considered better than the existing alternative (note how it skips checking the read time) :

13206           if (is_covering || 
13207               ref_key < 0 && (group || table->force_index) ||
13208               index_scan_time < read_time)
13209           {

      Bug #36259 : proof-of-concept fix (not final!).
      
      Don't accept unconditionally (without comparing the cost) 
      clustered ordering indexes.

      Bug #36259 (Optimizing with ORDER BY) and bug#45828 (Optimizer won't 
      use partial primary key if another index can prevent filesort
      
      The fix for bug #28404 causes the covering indexes to be preferred 
      over non-covering in the following two cases : 
       - when comparing the ordering indexes among themselves
       - when comparing the ref key to ordering indexes.
      
      Fixed by not considering the ordering indexes supperior to the 
      ref key. They're only supperior to non-covering ordering indexes.
