The following SELECT crashes server:
select * from v2 natural left join a2;

where v2 - view, a2 - table

How to repeat:
create table a1(a1 int);
insert into a1 values(1),(2),(3),(4),(5),(6);
create table a2(a2 int);
insert into a2 values(1),(2),(3),(4),(5),(6);
create view v2 (c) as select a1 from a1;
select * from v2 natural left join a2;
drop table v2, a1, a2;

The same problem with NATURAL RIGHT.

The problem is that natural outer join turns into outer join with no ON condition when joined tables don't have any common fields. 
This can be reproduced without views: 

select * from a1 natural left join a2;

Initial fix rejected, working on a new one

This bug requires considerable work to transform such queries into inner joins.
The bug will be fixed when such transformation is implemented in an upcoming
MySQL version.
