Description:
main.error_simulation creates and leaves behind it a file: mysql-test/FF.
It's because of this line:
set debug=OFF;
The developer probably wanted to turn off debug output, but due to the special syntax of "set debug", it is interpreted as "O to FF" i.e. "send debug output to a file named FF".

Verified with trunk and 5.7. Introduced by the fix for
bug#11747548 nisha.gopalakrishnan@oracle.com

It is a problem, because an otherwise clean tree looks unclean:
> git status -s
?? mysql-test/FF

How to repeat:
./mtr --embedded --mem main.error_simulation

then 

ls top_src_dir/mysql-test/FF

Suggested fix:
look at how other test files reset "debug"
