System hangs on/crashes on :

DatabaseMetaData.getColumns(null, null, "Table", null);

Result is the same with both connectors :
- mysql-connector-java-3.1.6-bin.jar
- mysql-connector-java-3.2.0-alpha-bin.jar

This worked on every previous releases starting 3.23 ==> 4.1.

Java version is :
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_06-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_06-b03, mixed mode)

How to repeat:
Always the same.

Suggested fix:
None. There is no workaround.

This is tested in our testsuite, so it's probably something specific to your schema. Can you please post a fully-repeatable testcase that includes the table structures that fail?

It happenned first on "Table" if Table is a VIEW.
Then, it happens now on all tables.
I can't repeat it to happen only on a VIEW
