MySQL has released version 5.0.37 of the Community Server. This is a binary and source-only release. You can read all about the new/changed functionality and bugfixes in the release notes. You can download the latest source version from the MySQL.com site.
You can download the binary install and do the source compile/install to get a functional 5.0.37 version running with all the goodies and defaults from the binary install. You still need to do the recompile to get the shared libraries. The bug still isn’t fixed, please add your vote to the bug-report to get this silly issue solved !
