When using Database Names like w500-details  , and create a table with eg 
"CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE tmp ...) inside this database ( so u have selected the 
database bevore with use) 
everythin is ok so far. 
But then using "DROP TABLE tmp" everything works fine so far on the master 
server.  But on The Slave Server i got an "ERROR: 1064  You have an error in 
your SQL syntax." with the w500-details beeing not correkt.  Well so far that 
is true, normaly when using db names with a - u just use ` elements so that 
mysql understands it correkt.   But  with the Replication the Master does the 
correkt query "DROP TABLE tmp" but seems to log into binlog "DROP TABLE 
w500-details.tmp" . So The Slave executes "DROP TABLE w500-details.tmp" but 
should execute "DROP TABLE `w500-details.tmp`" or "	DROP TABLE tmp" 

How to repeat:
Create and Drop 

Suggested fix:
most simplest way.  Escape all autogenerated Querys ( eg when adding 
w500-details to the query escape the Table Name)

I see this problem with 4.0.14 as well.  Exact same issue.  When temporary tables are automatically dropped at the end of a PHP script, the slave replication thread dies with an error indicating that it doesn't like the abc-xyz db name.  No issues on the master though.  In this case, temporary tables are created to get around the missing subqueries feature.
