I use the next connection's scheme:
node01 - MySQL proxy and Master MySQL server
node02 - Slave MySQL server

MySQL Proxy splits queries like r/w splitting scheme.

/usr/local/sbin/mysql-proxy --version
mysql-proxy 0.7.0
glib2: 2.12.9
libevent: 1.3b

Master server's version - 5.0.37
Slave server's version - 5.0.45

MySQL proxy started in this way
LUA_PATH="/usr/local/share/mysql-proxy/?.lua" /usr/local/sbin/mysql-proxy --proxy-lua-script=/usr/local/share/mysql-proxy/rw-splitting.lua --plugins=proxy --plugin-dir=/usr/local/lib/mysql-proxy/ --daemon --log-file=/tmp/mysql-proxy.log --log-level=debug --proxy-read-only-backend-addresses=

MySQL proxy crashed after some time of working with message
[debug] (command) unhandled type COM_BINLOG_DUMP

How to repeat:
1. Set up master-slave replication pair
2. Start mysql-proxy on master server with lua script 'rw-splitting.lua'
3. After some time (undefined) mysql-proxy crashed with message '[debug] (command) unhandled type COM_BINLOG_DUMP'

Thank you for the report.

If I understood correctly you are using MySQL Proxy between master and slave and is address of master. Please confirm or reject it.

No, is address of slave server.

Thank you for the feedback.

Verified as described.

To repeat:

1. Start server with --log-bin option
2. Start proxy as LUA_PATH=/path/to/lib/?.lua mysql-proxy --proxy-lua-script=/path/to/lib/rw-splitting.lua --plugins=proxy  --proxy-backend-addresses=master_host:master_port
3. Connect and issue command SHOW MASTER STATUS, record current binary log file name
4. Connect using mysqlbinlog like mysqlbinlog -R -h -P4040 -uroot log-bin.001320 
5. Get crashed Proxy due error "[debug] (command) unhandled type COM_BINLOG_DUMP"

Problem is not repeatable without rw-splitting.lua
