[14:53:57] serg: when you get a crash - you know what frm causes it, create a bug report on mariadb.org/jira and attach
this frm file
[14:54:03] serg: 10.1.5 won't crash on it
FYI the date of this conversation was the 14th of May 2015.
I'm providing the url to the syslog information that I was getting at the time of the issue.
Hopefully this helps.
