Upgrade 6.3.x to 7.0.6

Currently a number of users has reported upgrade issues on 6.3.x to 7.0.6 (below is an example what might happen to you).

Thus, we don't recommend you to upgrade from 6.3.x to 7.0.6 in a production system yet.
However, we are very interested in bug reports and and help with testing.
We are also of course working on fixing these issues and will keep you posted when things has improved. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Currently the "best practice" to upgrade is to:
1) backup / mysqldump
2) start cluster 7.0.6 with initial so it is completely blank
3) restore backup / load dump

ERROR 1005 (HY000): Can't create table 'test.#sql-3d25_aa905' (Errno: 140)

I've (as reported in the mailinglist) this problem, but I have not upgraded online from 6.3.xx to 7.0.6

I made a mysql-dump and imported this to the fresh 7.0.6 cluster. A few weeks later now I've tried to ALTER a table and id did not work, but these erros you told occured...
