Bug Description

The following test case makes valgrind complain when running mariadb-5.1:

SELECT SUBSTRING('1', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1)));
SELECT LEFT('1', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1)));
SELECT RIGHT('1', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1)));
SELECT REPEAT('1', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1)));
SELECT RPAD('hi', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1)),'?');
SELECT LPAD('hi', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1)),'?');

CREATE TABLE t1
SELECT SUBSTRING('1', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1))) AS f1,
       LEFT('1', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1))) AS f2,
       RIGHT('1', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1))) AS f3,
       REPEAT('1', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1))) AS f4,
       RPAD('hi', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1)),'?') AS f5,
       LPAD('hi', DAY(FROM_UNIXTIME(-1)),'?') AS f6;
SHOW CREATE TABLE t1;
DROP TABLE t1;

Most probably we have the same problem in other versions of MariaDB
