The documentation for server configuration options (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/mysqld-option-tables.html) indicates that init_connect is both session and global scoped:

init_connect 	Y 	Y 	Y 	  	*both* 	no

This is not true:

mysql> select @@session.init_connect;
ERROR 1238 (HY000): Variable 'init_connect' is a GLOBAL variable

How to repeat:
select @@session.init_connect;

Suggested fix:
Update documentation to indicate this is global only.
