I have a database with an unique key constraint.

When I import this database from a dump created by mysqldump I get


But when I check the database where the export was generated, the constraint violation is not visible:

mysql> select count(*) from catalogsearch_fulltext where product_id = 14698 and store_id = 3;
| count(*) |
|        1 |

I suppose that MySQL does not show the second entry, because it uses the index.

How can I show this entry and fix it easily on the live system?
