Are you sure the MySQL server wasn't updating the table while you ran isamchk?
Please read the suggestions at:
If you can find any way to replicate this, we will be able to provide
a patch very fast!
Note that if you are using a table with VARCHAR and without
BLOBS, you can try changing all VARCHAR to CHAR. This will force
MySQL to use a fixed size rows. These takes a little extra place, but
are much more tolerant for corruption!
The current dynamic row code has been in use at TCX for at least 3
years without any problems, but by nature dynamic length rows are more
prone to errors so it may be a good idea to try if the above helps!
