Ah, this reminds me of an old bug which is still open.
I've written a fix for it according to the users explanation, but never knew
any use for it.

Karsten, please have a look herer: http://bugs.typo3.org/view.php?id=1262

Does this solve your problem?

Since it is a MySQL bug, I'm unsure if we should commit this to the core.
Better wait for a MySQL upgrade maybe...?
