Dear friends of Falcon,
I just committed http://lists.mysql.com/commits/56749
It is unfortunately somewhat heavy patch, but it has to be so to run
Philip's test without errors (and the next start after recovery had
been been checked for errors as well;))
Among the highlights in the patch that contributed to successful
recovery (I use the word "highlights" secretly hoping to find the
reviewer for the big chunk of code;)
- exclusively for Hakan, removing 10 seconds wait hack on CREATE
TABLESPACE after DROP TABLE with the same file.
-Did you ever wonder how to posixly correct delete an open file on
Windows? And do this without invalidating already open handles to it?
Or whether it is possible to write a function that tells whether 2 files
are the same (or one is link to another),and the function will handle
absolute/relative representation, case-sensitivity and other
canonicalization issues on any OS? Both in this patch.
Thanks for your attention,
