If there is a 'connect' command between the 'disable_abort_on_error' and 'enable_abort_on_error' commands, the connect command is logged to the reject file.

The log includes default parameters such as the full path name to the socket.

How to repeat:
Select an arbitrary test file, e.g. backup_default.test
Insert the following sequence, e.g. at the end:

    --echo # connection con1
    --connect (con1,localhost,root,,)
    --disconnect con1
--echo # connection default
--connection default

Run the test. You will find a log of the 'connect' command.
Comment out --disable_abort_on_error, and re-run the test.
The log is gone.

Suggested fix:
Do not change log behavior based on disable_abort_on_error/enable_abort_on_error.

Triage values:
Defect: minor. Annoying, but not serious.
Workaround: partial. Can disable_query_log for the connect command.
Impact: minimal. disable_abort_on_error is seldom used.

I agree with Ingo's sugestion:
  Do not change log behavior based on disable_abort_on_error/enable_abort_on_error.

IMHO a solution like:
  mysqltest writes a corresponding message into the protocol when it executes a
  connection related builtin command like
  - connect(<connection_name>,....)
  - connection <connection_name>
  - disconnect <connection_name>
  - dirty_close <connection_name>
would be very useful because this makes protocols
much better understandable and the usual
--echo # Switch to connection ....
are no more needed.
Options within the preceeding line like
--replace_result ...     
must have an impact on the line written
into the protocol.

I am aware that such a change leads to modifications
of a lot of tests and expected results.
I volunteer for this in case my team lead agrees.

I wonder why you cleared all triage values and the lead.
Also i read in https://inside.mysql.com/wiki/BugTriageGuidelines#Setting_the_Lead_on_Bugs that mysqltest does explicitly not belong to the clients. So "Tests - Test tools" sounds more likely to be the right category.

Hi Ingo I had only added my comment.
This means the changes are done by some magic mechanism
within the BugsDB.
I restore the old values except
Category will be MTR/mysql-test-run

Not sure this should be "fixed" but in any case it belongs to me.

Picking this up. This was apparently added deliberately by WL #1339, which needed connect after --error logged. But the test for this was more general then needed and also covered disable_abort_on_error.

Working on a fix to limit this to connect after --error.
