Description:
 The max_binlog_cache_size system variable (default 4GB) can be used to restrict the total size used to cache a multiple-statement transaction. If a transaction is larger than this, it fails and rolls back.

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/binary-log.html

There is nothing within the manual about unit (Byte, Gigabyte ?) which is used for this cache. Also minimum and maximum value (if there exists any) is missing.

How to repeat:
see above

Suggested fix:

Unit = bytes
Minimum = 4096
Maximum/Default = 4GB
