When we use database 'Information_Schema', it is a read only database.If we try to drop the table 'Schemata' from 'Information_Schema' database, it gives a wrong error message stating 'ERROR 1051 (42S02):Unknown table 'schemata'.

How to repeat:
1) Use information_Schema database ie execute the following SQL statement:
     use information_schema//

2) Use 'Drop table' statement ie execute the following SQL statement:
    drop table schemata// 

Observed: It gives the following error message
'ERROR 1051 (42S02): Unknown table 'schemata''

Expected Result: It should show an appropriate error message.

Actual Result: IT shows an error message 'ERROR 1051 (42S02): Unknown table 'schemata''.

I got this error when I was try to drop a database and there were mixed tables, some ISAM and some InnoBD. (Needless to say I didn't create the database...)
