Description:
I create a table with a subpartition.
I try to alter and add a new column.
I fail.

How to repeat:
mysql> create table t (s1 int, s2 int) partition by list (s1)
    -> subpartition by hash (s2) (partition p1 values in (1));
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.09 sec)

mysql> alter table t add column s3 int;
ERROR 1499 (HY000): Too many partitions (including subpartitions) were defined

Thank you for the bug report. Which exactly source tree it was used to build the server?. I couldn't repeat with latest source of mysql-5.1 on Ubuntu 64-bit:

Verified just as described with recent 5.1.41 from bzr on Mac OS X:

Reading table information for completion of table and column names
You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

      Bug#48276: can't add column if subpartition exists
      
      Bug when setting up default partitioning,
      used an uninitialized variabe.
     @ mysql-test/r/partition.result
        Bug#48276: can't add column if subpartition exists
        
        Added result
     @ mysql-test/t/partition.test
        Bug#48276: can't add column if subpartition exists
        
        Added test
     @ sql/sql_partition.cc
        Bug#48276: can't add column if subpartition exists
        
        even if is_create_table_ind was set, one tried to set no_subparts
        with the unitialized no_parts local variable.
        
        Fixed by rearrange the code to be to only execute
        the statements when is_create_table_ind was not set.
