> Bug #51099 Assertion in mysql_multi_delete_prepare()
> This assert was triggered if DELETE was done on a view that
> referenced another view which in turn (directly or indirectly)
> referenced more than one table.
> Delete from a view referencing more than one table (a join view)
> is not supported and is supposed to give ER_VIEW_DELETE_MERGE_VIEW
> error. Before this error was reported from the multi table
> delete code, an assert verified that the view from the DELETE statement

> This patch fixes the problem by adjusting the assert to only verify
> that we are trying to insert into a view, rather than also try to verify
> there are more than one underlying table.
> This problem was only noticeable on debug builds of the server.
> On release builds, ER_VIEW_DELETE_MERGE_VIEW was correctly reported.

Maybe it makes sense to preserve original intent behind the assert by
adjusting it in the following way:
What do you think?
> my_error(ER_VIEW_DELETE_MERGE_VIEW, MYF(0),
I think it is OK to push this fix after considering the above suggestion.
