Drupal and MySQL Patch problems

Recently my web host server had a MySQL Patch applied taking it to version 4.1.21

This causes some bizarre problems with some Drupal installations - version 4.6.x. I have 3 sites that it is affecting differently. Fortunately it is only the main page (node) that it affects and so I have been able to limit the problem while waiting for a patch to be appplied.

Basically what is happening is that the main page posts have had their chronological appearance (from newest to oldest) reversed.

Discussion on the problem here.
Technical bug info here.
Patch to MySQL link found here.
