Description freebsd 2010-11-03 22:40:08 UTC
The file mysys/default.c contains a method init_default_directories() that populates a list of directories to search for options. The maximal list size is given by MAX_DEFAULT_DIRS, set in the same file to 6.

A patch included in the FreeBSD port adds an extra directory but does not bump MAX_DEFAULT_DIRS from 6 to 7.

Since this issue is created by the FreeBSD port in the first place, it is not an upstream bug.


Add a patch in the port that increases MAX_DEFAULT_DIRS by one.
How-To-Repeat: I spotted this with an embedded MySQL server. I expect it will happen with the non-embedded server as well: Set DEFAULT_HOME_ENV in the environment, then launch the server. It will attempt to add seven directories to the list and abort.
