I just observed this.

How to repeat:
Run replication with many transactions, and a small max_binlog_size on the slave, so that transactions get cut between several relay logs.
While it's running, do STOP SLAVE, SHOW SLAVE STATUS, and see how the printed relay log does not exist on the disk.

Suggested fix:
I'm working on it.

Not exact, the bug is a bit different. When I do STOP SLAVE, and SHOW SLAVE STATUS, the printed relay log exists, but it's the relay log than contains the end of the transaction. The previous one, which contains the beginning, has been deleted. But at next START SLAVE time, to replay the transaction, the slave would need the deleted log.

need a bit of time to finish testing the patch (always delayed because of other bugs, support questions, San Jose blah blah)

I have a patch but it changes many lines so it may go into 4.1, not 4.0.

will be fixed in 4.1.1

waiting for Monty's approval before applying a patch to 4.1
(4.0 won't be fixed).
