This happened to me the other day when the VM running our RT fell  
over.  I shut down the web interface, shut down mysql, and then used  
myisamchk to repair the table:

myisamchk --max-record-length=1000000 --safe-recover /var/lib/mysql/ 

I then restarted the database and apache, and all was well.
