Description:
I downloaded mysql-6.0.8-alpha-win32 and tried to run ma_sp_test.exe.
It crashes:

E:\mysql-6.0.8-alpha-win32\bin>dir ma_sp*.exe
 Volume in drive E is XXXXX
 Volume Serial Number is XXXX-XXXX

 Directory of E:\mysql-6.0.8-alpha-win32\bin

<crash>

E:\mysql-6.0.8-alpha-win32\bin>

How to repeat:
run ma_sp_test.exe

Suggested fix:
we shouldn't package unknown .exe's that have no apparent purpose, and crash, and no help or description is available.

sp_test.exe also crashes.
