From Matt Lebofsky's Technical News Post entitle Backslash (Oct 07 2009):

The replica recovery is on hold for a while. We've experiencing random, intermittent issues when trying to recover one database with a mysqldump from another. This used to always work perfectly, but then something in mysql 5.1 screwed up the quoting and backslashing. I was able to get around this before by writing a script that parsed the large dump files one line at a time, but even that isn't working now. Bob has found other complaints on the web about this, so maybe there's a bug fix somewhere (we're certainly not going to pore through 20GB of ascii looking for missing backslashes and whatnot). We might have to do another dump from scratch, which won't happen until next week, which means the replica may be offline until then. Still, when we recover from the outage (and the weekend backlog) I might still turn on the "show results" flag so users can see recent result history, etc.
