I have encountered a strange but documented and unresolved MySQL 
4.0.18 bug.  It seems very serious.

If an InnoDB table contains more than 16 concurrent text, mediumtext, 
or longtext fields, once the row byte-count exceeds 8000kb, table 
updates fail.

The error message manifests as: 1030, 'Got error 139 from table 

This bug shows on at least on RH8 and SUSE, but not W2K.

Has anyone encountered this dreadful bug?  Any suggested workarounds?
