Package: mysql-server-5.0
Version: 5.0.45-1+lenny1
Severity: normal

According to this link http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=31662 :

"if a view is created with invalid definer (or a definer gets removed),
field types as 'null'.
As field types are reused later by  mysqldump, invalid stub table
entries are placed to
dumps afterwards:

/*!50001 CREATE TABLE `a` (
  `xx` null
) */;

This renders mysqldumps not executable."

mysql >= 5.0.52 is not affected by this bug.

If you want to fix this into the current debian release, then you can
apply this patch:


Best regards.
