This patch was motivated by differences in the output of 'SHOW SLAVE
STATUS' on different versions of mysqld. I just subscribed an hour
ago, so I don't know if it's already been done before.
On 4.0.16, Slave_IO_Running and Slave_SQL_Running were columns 9 & 10
out of 18, as the plugin expected. On our 4.1.10a servers compiled
with SSL, they were 10 & 11 out of 33 total columns. This patch looks
for matching column names, rather than assuming the location of the
the patch looks good, i'll apply it to cvs. for future reference,
the current practice here is to post patches into the patch tracker,
so if you could do that instead or in parallel to posting here, it
would be appreciated.
