As per bug report http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=812

When mysqlhotcopy is run it reports it succeeds in creating the target ( database  or table ) then reports as having copied the source database to the target but the target database or directory is empty.

How to repeat:
./mysqlhotcopy m1 m2


./mysqlhotcopy m1 /scratch/m2

Locked 185 tables in 0 seconds.
Flushed tables (`m1`.`adodb_logsql`, `m1`.`m1assignment`, `m1`.`m1assignment_submissions`, `m1`.`m1backup_config`, `m1`.`m1backup_courses`, `m1`.`m1backup_files`, `m1`.`m1backup_ids`, `m1`.`m1backup_log`, `m1`.`m1block`, `m1`.`m1block_instance`,

cut for brevity

`m1`.`m1workshop_submissions`) in 0 seconds.
