To send an email after figuring half and hour is ok.

Every table object has 3 record object associated with it:
table->record A changed record or a record with new values
table->record Records are read into this
table->record An record with default values
In almost all cases in MySQL we are using table->record to write
The only case when we are not is when copying a row from a table to
another (Ie: We are writing an unchanged row (record) to another
identical table). In this case we should not update the
The check in the original code is:
if (table->next_number_field && buf == table->record)
I have now added the following comment to the code:
If we have an auto_increment column and we are writing a changed row
or a new row, then update the auto_increment value in the record.
