Bug Description

in MySQL 5.6 there are tables in the 'mysql' schema that should be converted to innodb to function properly.
If that has been done, a 'clear' command makes those tables unusable, as they can't live without the ibdata* files.

Suggested fix: the 'clear' command should convert those tables back to myisam.
