D.1.1. Changes in MySQL 5.1.61 (10 January, 2012)

    Bugs Fixed

      * InnoDB Storage Engine: Issuing INSERT...ON DUPLICATE KEY
        statements for InnoDB tables from concurrent threads could
        cause a deadlock
        dlock), particularly with the INSERT...ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE
        form. The fix avoids deadlocks caused by the same row being
        accessed by more than one transaction. Deadlocks could still
        occur when multiple rows are inserted and updated
        simultaneously by different transactions in inconsistent
        order; those types of deadlocks require the standard error
        handling on the application side, of re-trying the
        transaction. (Bug #11759688, Bug #52020)

      * An incorrect InnoDB assertion could cause the server to halt.
        This issue only affected debug builds. The assertion
        referenced the source file btr0pcur.ic and the variable
        cursor->pos_state. (Bug #13358468)

      * The handle_segfault() signal-handler code in mysqld could
        itself crash due to calling unsafe functions. (Bug #54082, Bug

      * ARCHIVE tables with NULL columns could cause server crashes or
        become corrupt under concurrent load. (Bug #51252, Bug

      * Enabling myisam_use_mmap could cause the server to crash. (Bug
        #48726, Bug #11756764)

      * Concurrent access to ARCHIVE tables could cause corruption.
        (Bug #42784, Bug #11751793)
