Description:
trying to cast a number bigger than 18446744073709551615 to unsigned returns the maximum signed bigint (9223372036854775808). 
I expected the cutoff at the maximum value for the data type (18446744073709551615 )

in other functions those numbers are used treaded as float, and handled currect, I tried to force float inside cast (+0.0 or just ..999.0) but it didnt help

How to repeat:
select cast(17999999999999999999 as unsigned);
+----------------------------------------+
| cast(17999999999999999999 as unsigned) |
+----------------------------------------+
|                   17999999999999999999 |
+----------------------------------------+

select cast(19999999999999999999 as unsigned);
+----------------------------------------+
| cast(19999999999999999999 as unsigned) |
+----------------------------------------+
|                    9223372036854775808 |
+----------------------------------------+
# should be 18446744073709551615 instead.

Suggested fix:

MySQL-5.0.22 demonstrates wrong behaviour as well,
but with a different result:

mysql> select cast(17999999999999999999 as unsigned);
+----------------------------------------+
| cast(17999999999999999999 as unsigned) |
+----------------------------------------+
|                   17999999999999999999 |
+----------------------------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> select cast(19999999999999999999 as unsigned);
+----------------------------------------+
| cast(19999999999999999999 as unsigned) |
+----------------------------------------+
|                            19999999999 |
+----------------------------------------+
1 row in set, 1 warning (0.00 sec)

mysql> show warnings;

5.1.10 works the same as 5.0.22 does.

Settting back to "in progress" as it needs additional fix for 5.0.

First patch is available in 4.1.22.
[12 Oct 2006 13:48] Paul Dubois
Noted in 4.1.22 changelog.

The result for CAST() when casting a value to UNSIGNED was limited to
the maximum signed BIGINT value (9223372036854775808), not the
maximum unsigned value (18446744073709551615).

Leaving report set to In Progress pending fix in 5.0/5.1 trees.

  Bug #8663 (cant use bigint as input to CAST)
  
  decimal->ulong conversion fixed to assign max possible ULONG if decimal
  is bigger
  Item_func_unsigned now handles DECIMAL parameter separately as we can't
  rely on decimal::val_int result here.

  bug #8663 cant use bigint unsigned as input to cast
  in the case of the overflow in the decimal->integer conversion
  we didn't return the proper boundary value, but just the result
  of the conversion we calculated on the moment of the error
