I'm not sure whether MySQL upstream feels so as well. Quoting the ChangeLog: An empty bit-string literal (b'') caused a server crash. Now the value is parsed as an empty bit value (which is treated as an empty string in string context or 0 in numeric context). (Bug#35658) Bug: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=35658 ChangeLogs: * 5.0.66 http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/releasenotes-es-5-0-66.html * 5.1.26 http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/news-5-1-26.html * 6.0.6 http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/6.0/en/news-6-0-6.html Gentoo handles this as bug 237166 [ https://bugs.gentoo.org/237166 ].
