[debian-mysql] Bug#458350: Another crash case

Another way to kill the server:

mysql> select User,Host from mysql.user group by User;
ERROR 2013 (HY000): Lost connection to MySQL server during query

caused by a signal 11.

Interestingly, group by Host doesn't trigger a segfault.

I think this bug's severity maybe should be grave or critical, since
many software packages use the group by statement. All my web
applications are unusable with this mysql version on arm. As far as I
know, there is no workaround.

I'm interested in what will happen now. Could a simple rebuild of etch3
solve the problem? If not, what will happen then? Do we simply wait for
a new version for etch? Could I try to download the source package, try
to sort out the differences between etch1 and etch3 and remove the
patches one by one, cross compile, test, and figure out what patch
caused it? Or is that a bit too simple?
