The general log of the server is missing some client requests:

- COM_REFRESH (implemented but does not show *what* was refreshed)

Especially the first one is bad as it prevents to use the general log to debug proper deallocation of prepared statements.

This bug is related but not identical to bug#13326

How to repeat:
Compile and run the attached program 'protest.c' then check contents of the general log:

shell> cc -o protest `mysql_config --cflags --libs` protest.c
shell> mysql -e "GRANT ALL ON *.* TO $LOGNAME"
shell> ./protest

Suggested fix:
Log information for the requests from the above list. See attached file protest.real.log for an example.

  Bug#28386 the general log is incomplete
  The problem is that the commands COM_STMT_CLOSE, COM_STMT_RESET,
  COM_STMT_SEND_LONG_DATA weren't being logged to the general log.
  The solution is to log the general log the aforementioned commands.

Noted in 5.1.24, 6.0.5 changelogs.

No information was written to the general query log for the
(These occur when a client invokes the mysql_stmt_close(),
mysql_stmt_reset() and mysql_stmt_send_long_data() C API functions.)
