If the MGM node is unavailable nodes cannot start but those already 
start keep
on working without any problems.

There is some work done on backup MGM nodes but it hasn't been

TEXT/BLOB attributes is very soon completed and pushed to the 4.1 clone.
Fulltext Indexes on TEXT/BLOB attributes is only supported on MyISAM and
no short-term plans on doing those in MySQL Cluster.
