When using mysqladmin with the -i, -r, & -c options, and extended-status, the -c seems to be ignored, and it runs indefinitely, as if you had left off the -c.

I tested it on a 5.1.25 system as well, and it has a different problem: it gives the extended status exactly once no matter what -c is, as if you had given -c1.

How to repeat:
mysqladmin -u<user> -p<xxx> -c3 -i3 -r extended-status

-- or --

mysqladmin -u<user> -p<xxx> --count=3 --sleep=3 --relative extended-status

Suggested fix:
Honor the --count/-c option

Thank you for the report.

I can not repeat described behavior. Please indicate which package do you use (file name).

We have 3 server installation types, and 2 behaviors.

1. Fedora servers, running package MySQL-client-5.1.24-0.glibc23

The -c option is ignored on these servers (it repeats forever)

2. Centos servers, running package MySQL-client-community-5.1.24-0.rhel5 

The -c option is forced to be "1" (it runs only once)

3. A Centos server, running package MySQL-client-community-5.1.25-0.rhel5

Same as the 5.1.24 Centos server.

Thank you for the feedback.

Problem with Fedora packages verified as described with MySQL-client-5.1.25-0.glibc23.i386.rpm package. With Red Hat problem is not repeatable for me.

I can't repeat this on Fedora 4.
