The table sys_file_reference and many other have no defined engine. So depending on the MySQL setup, they might be created as MyISAM tables.
It happened that the table sys_file_reference crashed, so TYPO3 did not work anymore until the table was repaired.

This could probably be prevented by changing the tables to InnoDB.

We use TokuDB as main engine. I would rather not have InnoDB to be forced for more tables. I propose to rather configure your server differently to use InnoDB as default engine instead.

I agree with Stephan on this, unless there is a requirement to force a certain engine type (like full text search) the database system should be the one that decides on the best defaults.
Given that InnoDB is the default engine since MySQL 5.5 and TYPO3 requires MySQL 5.5+ I don't see a big problem with keeping things the way they are.
