Thanks for a ping.
I've made the issue visible and it will be fixed (it was lacking
fixVersion value in Jira and thus it was not showing up in searches,
sorry for this).
I don't see why one shouldn't be able to use FIFO as general_log file.
So I hope we'll remove this limitation and fix the crash differently.
