Trying to get some variables.
Some pointers may be invalid and cause the dump to abort...
thd->query at 0x8b1b578 = update ignore `view_table0` set <cut>

How to repeat:
Either have a real out of memory scenario, or compile mysqld --with-debug=full and run it with --safemalloc-mem-limit=12485760 and then update a view in some threads.  After a few out of memory errors, debug assert will happen.  Will upload testcase later.

happens on select, delete, and update.

This not only happens on Windows.

When you have View that creates a temp table and you don't have enough space for this table then you will run into this problem.

Verified with ubuntu and MySQL 5.1.

It's in 5.5 also. Seeing it in Percona Server, but assume it would be the same in latest MySQL 5.5. Cannot see any memory or disk issues in this case. Would suggest re-triage.

Can be reproduced using gypsy. I used (missing space before --thr... is correct)

Noted in 5.1.69, 5.5.31, 5.6.11, 5.7.1.

View access in low memory conditions could raise a debugging assertion.
