Sorry for not replying to your other post.
ON_ERROR_ROLLBACK doesn't do the same thing, thats why. It shuts out the
noise messages, true, but it doesn't re-execute all of the commands in
the transaction that succeeded and so breaks the transaction, as
stmt2; <-- error
results in stmt3 completing successfully even though stmt1 and stmt2 do
not == broken script.
The behaviour we've been discussing is when stmt2 fails, to allow stmt3
to be submitted, so that at commit, stmt1 and stmt3 effects will be
successful *if* the user wishes this.
