A bug would pop-up if compressed MyISAM record containing one or more BLOB's
would be read.

How to repeat:

| contig_data | CREATE TABLE `contig_data` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
  `contig_data_id` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
  `contig_data_code` varchar(100) NOT NULL default '',
  `code` varchar(100) NOT NULL default '',
  `descr` varchar(255) default NULL,
  `dat` longtext,
  `created` varchar(100) NOT NULL default '',
  PRIMARY KEY  (`id`),
  KEY `contig_data_id` (`contig_data_id`),
  KEY `contig_data_code` (`contig_data_code`),
  KEY `code` (`code`),
  KEY `descr` (`descr`)

Fill up with data and run , e.g.:

select * from contig_data order by id;

A fix was to remove rec_buff parameter from _mi_pack_get_block_info function.
