nonexistent duplicate rows to a query.

Deleting from an

subsequently dropping the index, could cause a crash with an
The error message was improved for the case where an
UPDATE failed because the row
included several BLOB values greater than 768 bytes each,
causing the size of a row to exceed half the
page size. The old
message, was misleading; it suggested using BLOBs, when the
768-byte prefix for each BLOB column was the cause of the limit
Error Code 1118: Row size too large. The maximum row size for the used table type, not counting BLOBs, is 8126. You have to change some columns to TEXT or BLOBs
A workaround for the problem was to create the table with the
ROW_FORMAT=COMPRESSED clause, which is now
suggested in the message.

lock wait timeout for a row that was not expected to be locked.
The issue occurred under various isolation levels, such as
READ COMMITTED and
Partitioning: The buffer for the row currently read from each partition used for sorted reads was allocated on open and freed only when the partitioning handler was closed or destroyed. For SELECT statements on tables with many partitions and large rows, this could cause the server to use excessive amounts of memory.
This issue has been addressed by allocating buffers for reads from partitioned tables only when they are needed and freeing them immediately once they are no longer needed. As part of this fix, memory is now allocated for reading from rows only in partitions that have not been pruned (see Partition Pruning). (Bug #13025132)
