Multi-table update statement that updates nothing but calls FUNCTION with side effect will get the slave out of sync - the statement is not written into binlog, and neither are FUNCTION calls.

How to repeat:
Run this test:
--- t/rpl_md.test ---
source include/master-slave.inc;
connection master;

create table t1(a int);
insert into t1 values (1),(2);
create table t2(a int);
insert into t2 values (1),(2);

create table t3 (a int);
delimiter //;

create function f1(a int) returns int deterministic modifies sql data
  insert into t3 values(a);
  return 0;

delimiter ;//

update t1,t2 set t1.a=3, t2.a=3 where f1(t1.a);

select 'master' A;
select * from t3;
connection slave;
select 'slave' A;
select * from t3;
--- eof ---
and in .result file get:
select * from t3;
select 'slave' A;
select * from t3;

Suggested fix:
The problem is caused by the following piece of code:

sql/sql_update.cc: 1437
    Note that if we updated nothing we don't write to the binlog (TODO:
    fix this).

  if (updated && (local_error <= 0 || !trans_safe))
     <write to binlog here>
we should change " if (updated && " to 
 "if (updated && called-SPs-attempted-binlog-writes" ..

I'm not sure why Guilhem (author of the above comment) wanted to write multi-table updates to binlog. Will need to check that with him when he returns from vacation on Monday.

And problem may happen as well with:
INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, the multi- variants, LOAD DATA INFILE, consider for example this case:
table has a PK, INSERT INTO t VALUES(1);
INSERT INTO t VALUES(function_w_side_effect_which_returns_1);
then function will be called, will do its side effects, then will return 1 and INSERT will fail so no binlogging (because no rows updated in the table AND there was an error).
LOAD DATA INFILE is affected too before of SET clause.

Back to the original problem of multi-UPDATE, which can be fixed easily. The new problem, much harder to fix, and maybe not a showstopper, is how filed as BUG#13270.
[18 Sep 2005 11:05] Guilhem Bichot
Fixing it leads to a multi-UPDATE with function going into binlog (normal), which crashes slave, I filed it as BUG#13305. BUG#12844 will be fixed when 13305 is. Setting back to "Verified".

will fix this bug, push a test file which will be in a disabled state (because there is no way my testcase can avoid BUG#13305), and fixer of BUG#13305 will just have to enable this testcase.

verified with multi-DELETE too (sorry for bad English of the new synopsis, but the max number of chars is small in this field).

It's a duplicate of BUG#13270.
It'll be fixed with a fix for BUG#13348
[20 Sep 2005 13:07] Guilhem Bichot
BUG#13270 happens only if the statement has an error, which is a different case of the one here (where there is no error). BUG#13270 is the continuation of SergeyP's work which he already did on SELECT and SET.
This BUG#12844 is specific to multi-UPDATE and multi-DELETE (because those don't write to binlog if no rows affected), other statements are not touched. BUG#13270 is about lots of statements (INSERT etc). It's not a duplicate of BUG#13270.
Now it's a duplicate of BUG#13348.

Added 5.0.14 functionality change note:

          Multi-table <literal>UPDATE</literal> and
          <literal>DELETE</literal> statements are now written to the
          binary log and will replicate. (Bug #13348, Bug #12844)

Slight modification to note:

          Multi-table <literal>UPDATE</literal> and
          <literal>DELETE</literal> statements that do not affect any
         rows are now written to the binary log and will replicate. (Bug #13348, Bug #12844)
