I see the following warning when I build MySQL with GCC 8.1 and -Og:

/code/mysql/trunk/testclients/mysql_client_test.cc: In function ‘void test_mem_overun()’:
/code/mysql/trunk/testclients/mysql_client_test.cc:7842:20: error: ‘%d’ directive writing between 1 and 11 bytes into a region of size 9 [-Werror=format-overflow=]
     sprintf(field, "c%d int", i);
/code/mysql/trunk/testclients/mysql_client_test.cc:7842:20: note: directive argument in the range [-2147483648, 999]
/code/mysql/trunk/testclients/mysql_client_test.cc:7842:12: note: ‘sprintf’ output between 7 and 17 bytes into a destination of size 10
     sprintf(field, "c%d int", i);
cc1plus: all warnings being treated as errors

How to repeat:
Build MySQL.
