follow the simple set of instructions below to make it show up (and go
away again)

# use the test database, create a table, and put some data in
USE test;
CREATE TABLE a ( a varchar(255) default NULL ) TYPE=MyISAM;
INSERT INTO `a` (`a`) VALUES ('fooooooofooooooofooooooo');
INSERT INTO `a` (`a`) VALUES ('fooooooofoooooooWHAM');
INSERT INTO `a` (`a`) VALUES ('fooooooofoooooooBAR');
# now look at the properties of the table, no overhead yet
DELETE FROM a WHERE a='fooooooofoooooooWHAM';
# now look at the properties of the table again, there is an overhead now
# now look at the properties of the table yet again, overhead gone
