This is a FAQ, and is mentioned in the manual.  Also, you can
check the mailing list archives for some in-depth discussions
of this problem.

The best way around this is to recompile MySQL using gcc 2.8,
or to use an HP machine (although this feature is going to be
deprecated in the very near future).  Several other workarounds
can be found in the manual, although the wording is a bit back-
wards for your situation.

If you have more problems having problems, please use the
'mysqlbug' program to submit a full report, and let us know
what you've tried.  I'm sure we'll be able to throw a wrench
in your operations given enough information.  I'm sure you
are anxious to worry more about your work than your belly.
