The following test failed running with an embedded server:

main.slave_compressed_protocol_basic [ fail ]

mysqltest: At line 45: query 'SET @@global.slave_compressed_protocol = DEFAULT' failed: 1230: Variable 'slave_compressed_protocol' doesn't have a default value

The result from queries just before the failure was:
SET @global_start_value = @@global.slave_compressed_protocol;
SELECT @global_start_value;
SET @@global.slave_compressed_protocol = 1;
SET @@global.slave_compressed_protocol = DEFAULT;

More results from queries before failure can be found in /dev/shm/var-embedded-101/log/slave_compressed_protocol_basic.log

Stopping All Servers
Restoring snapshot of databases
Resuming Tests

That the variable would have no default is simply not true (see manual).

How to repeat:
execute the test mentioned above with the embedded server.

Suggested fix:
Better error message.

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described using just query:

SET @@global.slave_compressed_protocol = DEFAULT;

I don't see the slave_compressed_protocol_basic.test in the 5.1 tree - probably it's in the release tree only by now.
Still as the 'slave_compressed_protocol' only has sence with the replication (which is not available in the embedded server) i belive we have to add
--source include/have_log_bin.inc
--source include/not_embedded.inc

Will fix it that way when i see the code.

      Bug #35999 When using the embedded server a wrong message comes.
      HAVE_REPLICATION was on for the embedded server as the #define was in wrong place.
