In a previous post, I wrote about a suspected LIMIT problem. It turns out that suspicion proved correct. The solution was to move to a nested query which limits the underlying data and then allows the outer query to grab all the associated fluff that surrounds it.

Here is the fix to the original code:

$ cvs di -ub commits_by_committer.php

The query (greatly simplified), before, the fix was:
SELECT DISTINCT
	commit_log.commit_date - SystemTimeAdjust() AS commit_date_raw,
	commit_log.id                       AS commit_log_id,
	commit_log.encoding_losses          AS encoding_losses,
	commit_log.message_id               AS message_id,
	commit_log.committer                AS committer,
	commit_log.description              AS commit_description
   FROM commit_log, commit_log_elements, element 
  WHERE commit_log.committer = 'jb'
    AND commit_log_elements.commit_log_id = commit_log.id
    AND commit_log_elements.element_id    = element.id
ORDER BY 1 desc, commit_log_id
LIMIT 100

With the fix, the query becomes:

SELECT DISTINCT
	commit_log.commit_date - SystemTimeAdjust()        AS commit_date_raw,
	commit_log.id                                      AS commit_log_id,
	commit_log.encoding_losses                         AS encoding_losses,
	commit_log.message_id                              AS message_id,
	commit_log.committer                               AS committer,
	commit_log.description                             AS commit_description,
   FROM commit_log, commit_log_elements, element 
	  WHERE commit_log.id IN (
   SELECT tmp.id FROM (SELECT DISTINCT CL.id, CL.commit_date
     FROM commit_log CL
    WHERE CL.committer  = 'jb'
    ORDER BY CL.commit_date DESC 
    LIMIT 100
    )as tmp)
    AND commit_log_elements.commit_log_id = commit_log.id
    AND commit_log_elements.element_id    = element.id
ORDER BY 1 desc, commit_log_id
