add foreign constraint problem
I manualy changed foregn key_name (as auto suggested by client) coz it was too long (mysql complaining)
SQL Error (1452): Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`test`.<result 2 when explaining filename '#sql-a6c_4'>, CONSTRAINT `FK_t_hosts` FOREIGN KEY (`id_master`) REFERENCES `t` (`id`) ON )
I have 2 tables master-detail, where some master data does not have anything in detail.

Its simply a violation.
You cannot change/add a record since its missing its required foreign relation. Create the foreign relation first, then create the child record.
Although if I understand your last sentence properly, than that indicates your constraints have been applied backwards and you are constraining the 1 side of the 1. . .n relation. You should be constraining the n side of the relation.
