Sounds like you are hitting a ulimit with the database file, which has nothign
to do w/ mysql.  Can you check the size of your database files in /var/lib/mysql
and the current quotas or ulimits you have?

Comment 2 Asier 2005-04-06 06:39:23 UTC

I don´t know much about Lynux, but if I do ulimit -a the limit for file size 
is 100000 blocks. As red hat 9 has a blocksize of 16K, this must be a limit of 
1.6GB for a file. Mysql biggest file if 120MB, so this can´t be the problem. 
How do I see current quotas?

Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2005-04-06 23:45:14 UTC
Can you repro this with the older mysql version?

Comment 4 Pekka Savola 2005-11-16 13:22:58 UTC
This doesn't seem to be important enough to fix just on its own, so mark it DEFER.
