That's true. It gets us too. We haven't yet found a way to do it - the
table split algorithm is
already very complex and has to handle a lot of situations. Regrettably
there are more urgent
development tasks in the next 1-2 months but if anyone else wants to
work on a patch we'd
certainly try to help.
