Description:
init a statment and use it for a mysql_stmt prepare that fails. The error code returned from mysql_stmt_errno is correct.

Then use the same stmt to prepare and execute another query that suceeds. The error code returned from mysql_stmt_errno is still the same.

How to repeat:
Run below queries in new version of mysqltest....

--error 1054
select friedrich from (select 1 as otto) as t1;

select otto from (select 1 as otto) as t1;
eval select $mysql_errno as "after_successful_stmt_errno" ;

The output will be:
+ select friedrich from (select 1 as otto) as t1;
+ ERROR 42S22: Unknown column 'friedrich' in 'field list'
+ select otto from (select 1 as otto) as t1;
+ otto
+ 1
+ select 1054 as "after_successful_stmt_errno" ;
+ after_successful_stmt_errno
+ 1054

But should be:
+ select friedrich from (select 1 as otto) as t1;
+ ERROR 42S22: Unknown column 'friedrich' in 'field list'
+ select otto from (select 1 as otto) as t1;
+ otto
+ 1
+ select 0 as "after_successful_stmt_errno" ;
+ after_successful_stmt_errno
+ 0

Suggested fix:
Make stmt.last_errno be reset when mysql_stmt_prepare is called on a failed query. Or document in manual that stmt need to be closed.

It's a little tricky to find the exact place when to reset the errno variables again after a failed prepare.
[3 Aug 2006 8:58] Magnus Blåudd
But I guess a good start wouold be to produce a better error message when one tries to re-prepare a statement that has failed previous prepare.

Hello Magnus,
Sorry for a long delay in reply.

Please use the following patch, add a test case to mysql_client_test.c and submit a patch.
Thank you!

Applied patch and tested with mysqltest by removing the "hack" that closes the statement everytime it fails. 

It need some more debugging as there are some problems still, but that could be in mysqltest's usage of mysql_stmt_close?

Errors are (from /home/msvensson/mysql/my50-m-bug15518/mysql-test/var/log/mysqltest-time) :
mysqltest: At line 52: query 'select 3' failed: 1243: Unknown prepared statement handler (3) given to mysql_stmt_close
skipped 52 bytes from file: socket (4)

Interesting. Then there must be a bug somewhere - in my patch or in the code.

   - Always reset error when calling mysql_stmt_prepare a second time
   - Don't sned COM_STMT_CLOSE to server it conection has been lost.
   - Add test to mysql_client_test
   - Remove mysql_stmt_close in mysqltest after each query
   - Close all open statements in mysqltest if disable_ps_protocol is called.

Magnus, the patch is ok to push except that I didn't formally review mysqltest.c changes.
Please ask for mysqltest.c code review the person/team that owns it.

Noted in 5.0.36, 5.1.15 changelogs.

When a prepared statement failed during the prepare operation, the
error code was not cleared when it was reused, even if the subsequent
use was successful.
