Description:
The test is used to fail. Querying PB2 for it gets e.g:

https://central.sun.net/http://pb2.norway.sun.com/?template=mysql_show_test_failure&test_f...

rpl.rpl_seconds_behind_master 'stmt'     [ fail ]
        Test ended at 2010-10-25 17:19:07

CURRENT_TEST: rpl.rpl_seconds_behind_master
mysqltest: At line 66: 

The result from queries just before the failure was:
< snip >

Retrying test, attempt(2/3)...

How to repeat:
See the description, query PB2 failure database.

This has been failing sporadically for some time now. I have observed these
failures in the following trees:

- mysql-next-mr-opt-backporting
- mysql-next-mr-bugfixing
- mysql-next-mr-wl4034
- mysql-trunk-merge
- mysql-next-mr-wl4896
- daily-trunk-bugfixing
- mysql-next-mr-wl2540

Another interesting fact is that rpl_seconds_behind_master failures happened
only when binlog_format=statement.

My initial suspicions are that, either:

  1. assertions in the test that depend on timings are bad
  2. or, that Query_log_event::exec_time may have unexpected value (eg, it
     was not properly initialized), causing seconds_behind_master to show 
     smaller value than it should. See this snippet on rpl_slave.cc:

    if (!(ev->is_artificial_event() || ev->is_relay_log_event() ||
          (ev->when == 0) || ev->get_type_code() == FORMAT_DESCRIPTION_EVENT))
    {    
      rli->last_master_timestamp= ev->when + (time_t) ev->exec_time;
      DBUG_ASSERT(rli->last_master_timestamp >= 0);
    }    

Nonetheless, these are just hints, need further analysis.
