The error (see attached file) occured while executing the following query (keep in mind this query is incorrect, however the error still should not occur)

select <long list of columns> from folders,permissions,membership where folders.parent = 0 and folders.id = permissions.id and permissions.pview = '1' and (permissions.userid = 4 or (permissions.groupid = membership.groupid and membership.userid = 4)) orderby folders.sortorder;

How to repeat:
As above

this doesn't appear to be a bug at first glance unless it was trying to allocate over 4GB in 
memory unnecessarily.  What happens when you execute this query using the text client?

Actually the query runs fine in the command line, runs fine in an ODBC connection, and runs fine in MySQL Control Center.  Trying to run it in Query Browser results in the error mentioned, however.  It only returns 16 results.  Here is the updated query I tested everything with:

SELECT folders.caption,folders.userid,folders.formid,folders.source,folders.filter,folders.authlevel,folders.parent,folders.sortorder,folders.sortby,folders.sortasc,folders.rowlimit,folders.id,folders.useadvanced,folders.advtable,folders.advgroupby,folders.advcolumns,folders.advcolumnid FROM folders,permissions WHERE folders.parent = 86 and folders.id = permissions.folderid and permissions.pview = '1' and (permissions.userid = 4 or permissions.groupid in (select groupid from membership where userid = 4)) GROUP BY folders.id ORDER BY folders.sortorder;

I should clarify when I said 'it only returns 16 results'.  This is all that is supposed to be returned by the query, and is returned properly in that list of working programs.  In Query Browser it crashes right away, returning nothing except an error and exiting the program.

Hi Bob,

Could you provide me with a dump of the folders and permissions table so that I can try and 
repeeat the problem?  If it is too large you can put it on ftp.mysql.com using the anonymous

Best Regards

I emailed the tables to you (mlord@mysql.com)

I've tried reproducing it in Linux with the provided dump and it simply returned an empty resultset.
Running the same query from the command-line client also returns no values.
Might be something Windows specific.

There is a different reason for the glib error we haven't found yet. The problem is, that it doesn't occure every time but once in a while.
We will put more reseach in this one.

I'll attach the dump for the tables needed to run this query and reproduce the error.
