Package: mysql-server-5.0
Version: 5.0.45-5
Severity: normal

When doing a "CREATE TABLE tbl_1 (id INT(11) AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY, test VARCHAR(25)) ENGINE=ndbcluster;", 
I get the error message "ERROR 1005 (HY000): Can't create table './test_db/tbl_1.frm' (errno: 879)". Despite that 
message there is a table tbl_1 in my database. 
On the node where I created the table I get the following message when doing a "DESCRIBE tbl_1":

mysql> describe tbl_1;
ERROR 1296 (HY000): Got error 4243 'Index not found' from ndbcluster

On my other node I get the following:

mysql> describe tbl_1;
| Field | Type        | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
| id    | int(11)     | NO   | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment | 
| test  | varchar(25) | YES  |     | NULL    |                | 
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

When trying to insert some data into this table I get th following error:

mysql> INSERT INTO tbl_1 VALUES (0, "test1");
ERROR 1296 (HY000): Got error 4243 'Index not found' from ndbcluster

When doing a "CREATE TABLE tbl_2 (id INT(11) PRIMARY KEY, test VARCHAR(25)) ENGINE= ndbcluster;" instead of the above command,
I get no error message and the table can be described on all nodes.

mysql> describe tbl_2;
| Field | Type        | Null | Key | Default | Extra |
| id    | int(11)     | NO   | PRI |         |       | 
| test  | varchar(25) | YES  |     | NULL    |       | 
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

When trying to insert into this table with the following command:

mysql> INSERT INTO tbl_2 VALUES (1, "test");

I get the following error message:
ERROR 1296 (HY000): Got error 879 '879' from ndbcluster

When doing the same with the original mysql binaries I get no errors at all.
My ndb-Cluster consists of 3 physical nodes. One of these serves as management node, the other two are both data- and mysql-nodes.
I am working with 2 replicas.
