This means that until we have this fixed and you get this problem,
you should not use INSERT DELAYED.
It would be nice if anyone could come up with a patched fork_test.pl
program that also gets similar lockups.. This would make it much
easier to find what's going on.
As a separate note:
Joshua Chamas is almost ready with an addition to MyISAM that allows it
to do INSERT:s to the end of a MyISAM table at the same time other
threads are reading from it. This should solve almost all problems
where one uses INSERT DELAYED for logging tables.
PS: Sorry for the long delay before replying, but I just come back from
a 2 weeks vacation trip.
