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 = 338312 K
bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...

Trying to get some variables.
Some pointers may be invalid and cause the dump to abort...

How to repeat:
CREATE DATABASE part_features;

USE part_features;

CREATE TABLE `t_part` (
  `user_num` INT DEFAULT NULL,
  `modified` datetime DEFAULT NULL,
  KEY `user_num` (`user_num`)

INSERT INTO t_part VALUES ( 1, now() ), ( 2, now() );

INSERT INTO tmp_part SELECT * FROM t_part;
SELECT * FROM tmp_part;

Suggested fix:
It's noticeable that in the provided scenario, creation of temporary tmp_part table via LIKE succeeds, even although direct creation of a temporary table with partitions is not allowed -- maybe that's (a part of) the problem.

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described.

      Bug#49477: Assertion `0' failed in ha_partition.cc:5530
      with temporary table and partitions
      It was possible to create temporary partitioned tables
      via create table ... like ... (which is not allowed with
      create temporary table). This lead to a new HA_EXTRA flag
      (HA_EXTRA_MMAP) was sent to the partitioning handler,
      which was caught on an assert in debug builds.
      Solution was to check for partitioned tables when
      doing create table ... like ... and disallow it.

Documented bugfix in the 6.0.14 changelog as follows:

        It was possible to execute a CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE tmp LIKE pt
        statement, where pt is a partitioned table, even though 
        partitioned temporary tables are not permitted, which caused the 
        server to crash. Now a check is performed to prevent such statements 
        from being executed.
