Interesting bug.

I agree that the overflow enhancement does not deserve a CVE when the only
known attacks do not cross privilege boundaries.

MySQL 4.1.x before 4.1.24, 5.0.x before 5.0.60, 5.1.x before 5.1.24,
and 6.0.x before 6.0.5 allows local users to bypass certain privilege
checks by calling CREATE TABLE on a MyISAM table with modified (1)
DATA DIRECTORY or (2) INDEX DIRECTORY arguments that are within the
MySQL home data directory, which can point to tables that are created
in the future.
