Running falcon_bug_22207-big on 32-bit Linux leads to crash

How to repeat:
Use latest mysql-6.0-falcon-team tree

 ./mysql-test-run.pl --big-test --suite-timeout=6360 --testcase-timeout=3600 --suite=falcon falcon_bug_22207-big falcon_bug_22207-big falcon_bug_22207-big

falcon.falcon_bug_22207-big    [ fail ]

mysqltest: At line 68: query 'UPDATE t1 SET c2 = c2 + 1, c1 = concat(rpad(conv(c2,10,10),10,'_'), repeat(c3, 40))' failed: 2013: Lost connection to MySQL server during query

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help diagnose
the problem, but since we have already crashed, something is definitely wrong
and this may fail.

It is possible that mysqld could use up to
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 60005 K
bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...

The result from queries just before the failure was:

Assigning this to myself by way of proxy for Jim Starkey, who agreed to look into it.

I can probably take credit for fixing this with the following patch.  But that also means I can take credit for causing this problem as well :)
See also Bug#42080 & Bug#41831.

A patch for this bug has been committed. After review, it may
be pushed to the relevant source trees for release in the next
version. You can access the patch from:


2959 Kevin Lewis	2009-01-14
      Bug#42080, Bug#41831  In both of these bugs, the scavenger was pruning
      records that it should not have.  The record version chosen to start 
      pruning is returned from RecordScavenge::inventoryRecord().  This 
      function is improved so that only the oldest visible record is returned.
      In addition, Recordversion::committedbefore() is added to simplify 
      the code and read RecordVersion::transaction only once since it can be 
      set to null at any time.
