wondering why an invalid insert (exceeds char length varchar(100)) breaks when piping mysqlbinlog output to RDS-- when pasted into a client and run separately-- it inserts, truncates, and warns instead.

Was the column definition identical on the server that generated the binlog? – Michael - sqlbot Mar 14 '13 at 14:51
Come to find out that it's not the character length thats causing the problem-- its a hidden character in the mysqlbinlog output. Not sure how best to clean these out... – JShean Mar 15 '13 at 14:01
