If debug-check is set, the flag for debug_info is removed. 

When debug-info is used without debug-check, it set both flags (info and check), however, --debug-check removes the flag from debug-info. They should work independently. 

The same issue occurs on all clients (mysql,mysqladmin,mysqldump,...)

In addition, the manual doesn't say correctly why debug check is for.  This flag is used to check for opened files when the client exits and print them (mysys/my_init.c:145)


How to repeat:
Use debug-info and debug-check options with the client.

Suggested fix:
Use the flags MY_CHECK_ERROR and MY_GIVE_INFO correctly.

Patch for mysql attached, a similar patch needs to be applied for all other clients.

Hello Erico,

Thank you for the report and contribution.

Just want to point out that --debug-info is a super-set of --debug-check by design. See bug #30127 for details.
