This sounds like a glibc bug.

Any change you can debug this for me?

Check the MySQL manual section 'How to debug the MySQL server'.

Put a break point at:


Like this:

shell> gdb mysqld
gdb>   break Field_timestamp::fill_and_store
gdb>   run

# Execute your update
# When mysqld stops do:

gdb>  step
gdb>  back

And mail the result from the above!
