1.99.1. RHBA-2011:0494: mysql bug fix update

Updated mysql packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
MySQL is a multi-user, multithreaded SQL database server.
These updated mysql packages provide fixes for the following bugs:
* Resolving queries containing a subquery with the DISTINCT and ORDER BY subclauses could have triggered a memory leak causing the query resolution to fail or the server to terminate unexpectedly if it had to process an extensive number of rows. With this update, the respective upstream patch has been applied and the queries are resolved correctly. (BZ#692953)
* Previously, the MySQL client could have corrupted input lines exceeding one megabyte due to errors in the code for handling the line splitting. This update changes the underlying code and the client saves such input lines correctly. (BZ#700497)
All users of mysql are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
