Same test case but 2 (instead of 4) LQH threads.
crash at line 1065
  ddassert(pagePtr.p->uncommitted_used_space > 0)
This 2-thread case took several hours.

During checkpoint, DD and MM create a consistent point that they both restore to.
There was in the MM part that (really rarely) could include/exclude one row that
should be in the snapshot. This would later cause crash during/after recovery.

note to docs:
1) read my comment above on checkpoint
2) this seems to be somewhat more likely if using ndbmtd in 7.x

Documented bugfix in the NDB-6.2.18, 6.3.26, and 7.0.6 changelogs as follows:

      During a checkpoint, restore points are created for both the on-disk and
      in-memory parts of a Disk Data table. Under certain rare conditions, 
      the in-memory restore point could include or exclude a row that
      should have been in the snapshot. This would later later lead to a crash
      during or following recovery.

      [7.0.6 version only:] 
      This issue was somewhat more likely to be encountered when using
