When I try the verion 5 alpha , one command "describe" cause mysql service stopped :
mysql> use menagerie
Databse changed
 ...   REM create pet table as the sample instruction

mysql> describe pet;

REM windows XP popup a system errors and mysql service is stopped

How to repeat:
start the mysql server
use the command "describe" to any table

Suggested fix:
to revise the design of this command "describe"
