Bug Description

We found a simple XA transaction that crashes MySQL 5.5 replication. This simple transaction merely inserts into InnoDB and TokuDB tables. The bug was caused by a flaw in the logging code exposed by the transaction’s use of two XA storage engines (TokuDB and InnoDB) and was fixed in the TokuDB 6.0.1 release.

Here are some details. Suppose that a database contains the following tables.
create table t1 (a int) engine=InnoDB
create table t2 (a int) engine=TokuDB

The following transaction
insert into t1 values (1)
insert into t2 values (2)
causes the replication slave to crash.

The crash occurs when mysqld tries to dereference a NULL pointer.
