The executable file mysql_tzinfo_to_sql is about 160KB in 5.1.43 and 1350KB in 5.1.44.  This is pretty bizarre since I cannot see any change in the source code or relevant makefile entries, nor do I see anything about it in the ChangeLog.  Is it intentional?

How to repeat:
Check size of installed file /usr/bin/mysql_tzinfo_to_sql

Hmm ... actually, looking closer, it seems to have returned to about the size it was in 5.1.42.  Even odder.

I rebuilt the .43 SRPM to see if there was some change in the relevant system libraries, but it didn't change it.

Thank you for the report.

Name "mysql-server-5.1.42-7.fc11.x86_64.rpm" looks like this is not our binaries. Where did you download this file?
