MySQL: "Cannot insert new word" error

The internal forum (powered by phpBB) I was using was suddenly giving me the error "cannot insert new word". Tailing /var/log/messages and MySQL error logs came up empty. After Googling a bit, it seems that the MySQL tables are corrupt. Running the SQL command below fixes the problem beautifully:
repair table [tablename];
