WL#5020: improve checksum returned by CHECKSUM TABLE
Affects: Server-9.x — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
Here are some problems with the current CHECKSUM TABLE: - http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=39474 "checksum table reports equal checksums when data is different" - a MyISAM table with variable-size records and a MyISAM table with fixed-size records have a different checksum though data is identical (testcase attached to this WL). 5.1 and 6.0, though they report different checksums (because code was changed in 6.0), both have those problems.
