MySQL InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT bug (next value to use forgotten at restart)
|Reported by:||kent@…||Owned by:||kedmiston|

I recently ran into problems with Django's automatic id field.
When the latest added object in a table was deleted, a new object created
some time later reused the same id value as the deleted object.
It turned out that this was due to the fact that I had restarted the
MySQL server between the deletion and the creation, and the fact
that the InnoDB backend does not remember the AUTO_INCREMENT value
when restarted (instead recreating it as "max(id)+1").
See for example http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=727
I guess there is not much that Django can do to fix this, but I think
the MySQL/InnoDB documentation should mention this peculiarity.
