We have been encountering odd, random cases where a MYSQLDUMP created from v 3.23.49 will not load all data when imported into v 4.0.13.  It loads fine into v 4.0.12.  No errors are generated, nor any indication that some of the data is not loaded.  Some tables are just empty.  If you care for any more details, or would like a copy of the mysql dump, let me know.  We're doing these commands from a DOS box on Win XP:  "mysqldump --opt dbname > script.sql", and then "mysql dbname < script.sql".  When we over-write the 4.0.13 version with 4.0.12, it works fine.  

How to repeat:
I can send you the mysqldump file if you'd like.

Could you please upload the test case at:


Use a zip file with identification for this bug.

Just uploaded zip file of mysql dump.  Let me know if you need anything else.  FYI, to identify the problem, we did a lot of "testing", like deleting the DB, deleting the tables that had the problem, etc, and it was always repeatable.  I also re-installed 4.0.13 just in case, but the problem was still there.  Once I "downgraded" to 4.0.12, it worked just fine.

I tested it with 4.0.12, pre-4.0.14 and pre-3.23.57 (both from BK tree) and got exactly the same result with all of them. Can you tell us more about what exactly the difference is?

I tested it with Importing to all three databases, then mysqldump --opt and diff between dumps. The only difference is MySQL version number.

Can you please try prepring smaller test case - just tables which appear to be different on 4.0.12 and 4.0.13. One or two tables are enough.

It will be best if you can send us original dumpfile from 3.23.49, dumps from both 4.0.12 and 4.0.13 (they should be different) and Tables themselves.

Sure...I'll just pick out one of the tables that didn't work, and make sure I can recreate it on my local system.  It will probably be later tomorrow when I get it to you, so that I have time to test it.
