Description:
The 'innodb_strict_mode' variable is documented: " .. returns errors rather than warnings for exceptional conditions. ...".

(http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/innodb-parameters.html#sysvar_innodb_strict_mode + same/parallel 5.5 docs page)

How to repeat:
See above

Suggested fix:
I try to find the term 'exceptional conditions' explained in the manual but did not find anything. 

Please document exactly what 'exceptional conditions' are handled by this mode. Currently docs does not help me (or anybody) to understand it.

Thank you for the documentation request.

634 bit server (as I first wrote) seems to be some future architecture (would be interesting though!). :-) 

Corrected!
