An IRC user reported some strange behavior with the MD5 function under
the version 3.3.2 shipped with Ubuntu.
For instance, select md5('blah') is returning
of 6f1ed002ab5595859014ebf0951522d9. I also tested a few other strings,
which aren't worth copying and pasting here other than to say they are
I did some work with git and found it affects the officially distributed
versions 3.3.0, 3.3.1, and 3.3.2 (and was then fixed for 3.3.3).
Since it's been fixed for several releases, I don't think anything needs
to be done about it, but I haven't seen any bug reports or commit
messages about it and thought it should be mentioned.
To reproduce under any of 3.3.0, 3.3.1, or 3.3.2 go to the SQL query
window, run the query "select md5('blah')" and compare the result to the
same query run from the command line (or a non-affected pma instance).
