http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/slow-query-log.html is the only place the manual mentions mysqldumpslow.  It seems important enough to be mentioned in section 7, Client and Utility Programs.

How to repeat:
Doc bug.

This will not be done until Bug#25855 is handled. That is, a developer needs to address the mysqldumpslow problems described there before a proper manual section can be written.

Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about this until the underlying "cause" is fixed; see bug #25855: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=25855. mysqldump is a third-party tool which doesn't seem to be actively developed any more. We can't document what we don't understand.
