  • This isn't fixed in MySQL 5. I've just been fighting the same problems.

    The solution, it seems, is to put the database into strict mode [mysql.com]. The description includes this:

    Make MySQL behave like a "traditional" SQL database system. A simple description of this mode is “give an error instead of a warning” when inserting an incorrect value into a column.

    But I can't understand why anyone would possibly want a database to not behave in the traditional manner.
