5.1 doesn't solve all merge table hell from 5.0.

This week I've had to revisit merge tables once again due to customers experiencing problems. Although 5.1 merge table implementation is a huge improvement over 5.0, there still remains some critical bugs.

My list is still growing:

bug #45800: crash when replacing into a merge table and there is a duplicate
bug #45781: infinite hang/crash in "opening tables" after handler tries to open merge table
bug #45796: invalid memory reads and writes when altering merge and base tables
bug #45777: check table doesn't show all problems for merge table compliance in 5.1

Not to mention a few feature requests, and even documentation clarification for some manual sections.
