Got ..java.sql.SQLException: Incorrect arguments to mysql_stmt_execute
  at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.checkErrorPacket(MysqlIO.java:2851)
  at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.sendCommand(MysqlIO.java:1531)
  at com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement.executeUpdate(PreparedStatement.java:1974)
  at com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement.executeUpdate(PreparedStatement.java:1897)
  at com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement.executeUpdate(PreparedStatement.java:1758)

that doesn't help much

How to repeat:
the issue was that upon inserting a blob, the stream was already read until the end.

Suggested fix:
1) say which of the arguments caused the error
2) probably, it would even be possible to say something like:

"empty stream received - reset() first?"

That error message comes from the server, so changing category as such.

Please, specify the exact version of server and Connector/J used. Try to repeat with latest (5.0.18, in case of 5.0.x server branch) versions generally available, and inform about the results.

if we find time, we'll update to 5.0

Anyway, at leat no SQLWarnings were issued that we could catch with the below code:

    public static void dumpSqlWarnings(ResultSet rs) throws SQLException {
        if (rs != null) {
            SQLWarning sqWarn = rs.getWarnings();
            if (sqWarn != null) {

    public static void dumpSqlWarnings(PreparedStatement stmt)
            throws SQLException {
        if (stmt != null) {
            SQLWarning sqWarn = stmt.getWarnings();
            if (sqWarn != null) {

    public static void dumpSqlWarnings(SQLWarning sqWarn) {
        log.debug("sqw - errCode: " + sqWarn.getErrorCode());
        dumpSqlWarnings(sqWarn.getNextWarning()); // possibly need to
        // avoid recursion
        dumpSqlExceptions(sqWarn.getNextException());// possibly need
        // to avoid recursion

    public static void dumpSqlExceptions(SQLException sqExcept) {
        if (sqExcept != null) {
            log.debug("sqe - errCode: " + sqExcept.getErrorCode());
            log.debug("sqExcept.getSQLState(): " + sqExcept.getSQLState());
            log.debug("sqExcept.getLocalizedMessage(): "
                    + sqExcept.getLocalizedMessage());
            dumpSqlExceptions(sqExcept.getNextException());// possibly need to
            // avoid recursion

Please, try to repeat with a newer version of Connector/J (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/3.1.html) and inform about the results. I also cvhanged category, as it is JDBC-related and not a server-related problem.
