After several successful mysql_stmt_fetch() calls, and a successful mysql_stmt_data_seek(), another mysql_stmt_fetch() fails with MYSQL_NO_DATA.

How to repeat:
#include <mysql.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(void)
  MYSQL *conn = 0;
  MYSQL_STMT *stmt = 0;
  MYSQL_RES *res = 0;
  MYSQL_BIND *bind;
  int r = 0;
  long unsigned int len;

  char *create = "CREATE TABLE qtest (a int)";
  char *insert = "INSERT INTO qtest VALUES(2),(3),(4)";
  char *drop = "DROP TABLE qtest";
  char *select = "SELECT * FROM qtest";

  conn = mysql_init((MYSQL*) 0);
  mysql_real_connect(conn, "localhost", "root", "", "test" , 3306, NULL, 0);

  mysql_real_query(conn, create, strlen(create));
  mysql_real_query(conn, insert, strlen(insert));

  stmt = mysql_stmt_init(conn);
  r = mysql_stmt_prepare(stmt, select, strlen(select));

  bind = (MYSQL_BIND*)malloc(sizeof(MYSQL_BIND));

  bind->buffer_type = MYSQL_TYPE_STRING;
  bind->buffer = (char*) malloc(sizeof(char) * 200);
  bind->buffer_length = 200;
  bind->is_null = 0;
  bind->length = &len;

  r = mysql_stmt_bind_result(stmt, bind);
  printf("Error bind: %s\n", mysql_stmt_error(stmt));

  r = mysql_stmt_execute(stmt);
  printf("Error execute: %s\n", mysql_stmt_error(stmt));
  r = mysql_stmt_store_result(stmt);
  printf("Error store result: %s\n", mysql_stmt_error(stmt));

  // retreive all result sets till we are at the end
      printf("fetched result:%s\n", bind->buffer);

  // seek to the first row
  mysql_stmt_data_seek(stmt, 0);
  printf("Error data seek: %s\n", mysql_stmt_error(stmt));

  // now we should be able to fetch the results again
  // but mysql_stmt_fetch returns MYSQL_NO_DATA
  while(!(r = mysql_stmt_fetch(stmt)))
      printf("fetched result after seek:%s\n", bind->buffer);
  if(r == MYSQL_NO_DATA)
      printf("No Data! ):\n");

  mysql_real_query(conn, drop, strlen(drop));


  return 0;

The bug is in mysql_stmt_fetch: 
There you set  
stmt->read_row_func= stmt_read_row_no_data; 
if read_row_func returns MYSQL_NO_DATA 
But if you have a buffered result set, there is no chance to read from it again after 
this call - even if you call mysql_stmt_data_seek() 
It is also marked with a /* XXX: this is buggy */ so I guess you already know where 
the failure is (:
