Description:
Executing FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK from SP is possible. To unlock the tables UNLOCK TABLES is needed. However, even after UNLOCK TABLES the procedure which was used for FLUSH TABLES cannot be dropped. The server reports that it does not exist but a query against mysql.proc shows quite the opposite. The procedure can be dropped only after another CREATE PROCEDURE statement is executed.

  BUG#21414: SP: Procedure undroppable, to some extent
  
  The problem was that if after FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK the user
  issued DROP/ALTER PROCEDURE/FUNCTION the operation would fail (as
  expected), but after UNLOCK TABLE any attempt execute the same operation
  would lead to the error 1305 "PROCEDURE/FUNCTION does not exist",
  and an attempt to execute any stored function will also fail.
  
  The solution is not to reset mysql_proc_table_exists if we are in a
  GLOBAL READ LOCK mode (i.e. if THD::global_read_lock is set).

  BUG#21414: SP: Procedure undroppable, to some extent
  
  The problem was that if after FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK the user
  issued DROP/ALTER PROCEDURE/FUNCTION the operation would fail (as
  expected), but after UNLOCK TABLE any attempt to execute the same
  operation would lead to the error 1305 "PROCEDURE/FUNCTION does not
  exist", and an attempt to execute any stored function will also fail.
  
  This happened because under FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK we couldn't open
  and lock mysql.proc table for update, and this fact was erroneously
  remembered by setting mysql_proc_table_exists to false, so subsequent
  statements believed that mysql.proc doesn't exist, and thus that there
  are no functions and procedures in the database.
  
  As a solution, we remove mysql_proc_table_exists flag completely.  The
  reason is that this optimization didn't work most of the time anyway.
  Even if open of mysql.proc failed for some reason when we were trying to
  call a function or a procedure, we were setting mysql_proc_table_exists
  back to true to force table reopen for the sake of producing the same
  error message (the open can fail for number of reasons).  The solution
  could have been to remember the reason why open failed, but that's a lot
  of code for optimization of a rare case.  Hence we simply remove this
  optimization.

Approved over email. Dmitri is OK too.
[27 Sep 2006 10:20] Tomash Brechko
Queued to 5.0-runtime and 5.1-runtime.
[28 Sep 2006 9:31] Petr Chardin
pushed to 5.1.12
[3 Oct 2006 19:37] Dmitry Lenev
Fixed in 5.0.27 and 5.1.12
[5 Oct 2006 15:16] Paul Dubois
Noted in 5.0.27, 5.1.12 changelogs.

After FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK followed by UNLOCK TABLES, attempts
to drop or alter a stored routine failed with an error that the
routine did not exist, and attempts to execute the routine failed
with a lock conflict error.
[25 Oct 2006 16:44] Paul Dubois
The 5.0.x fix is in 5.0.30.
