Importantly, I'm getting it only on a 1-core 32-bit machine, but not on a 4-core 64-bit machine. I'm not sure what makes the difference, the number of CPU or the architecture, or something else. Both are openSUSE 11.3.

How to repeat:

I'm getting it while running the MTR test 1st from the main suite, with all default settings and valgrind-mysqld.

Not reproducible with thread_handling=one-thread-per-connection or no-threads.
