Executing the query "SHOW SLAVE STATUS" as a user without any privileges returns an error stating that both SUPER and REPLICATION CLIENT are required permissions.

This is not true. Only REPLICATION CLIENT is needed for SHOW SLAVE STATUS.

How to repeat:
Execute query "SHOW SLAVE STATUS" as a user without any privileges.

Suggested fix:
Remove the SUPER privilege from the error message.

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. Because of this, we hope you add your comments to the original bug instead.

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.
