Please consider to rename the mysql commandline replace with a prefix, f.e. mysqlreplace. The issue is that at least Windows OS ships its own replace, and so its only a matter of the search path order which replace is used if you call it from commandline, or from scripts.
This issue has biten me now 2nd time - even recently on Linux where someone installed a replace shell script ...
'replace' is a too generic name - please rename to make clear its a mysql binary.

thanks, G√ľnter.

How to repeat:
open win32 cmd box; type 'replace /?'
