the documentation (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-utilities/1.6/en/mysqlfailover.html) states in Table 5.3 External Script Parameters
that exec-after receive "new master host, new master port"

When using the tool, my exec-after script receives "old_master old_port new_master new_port"

How to repeat:
write a bash script that echo $? in a file
start mysqlfailover with that script in --exec-after
make the master node fail
check the file

Suggested fix:
fix the doc
