Bug Description

http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-server/5.5/diagnostics/misc_info_schema_tables.html#GLOBAL_TEMPORARY_TABLES does not mention what kind of temporary tables are shown. Apparently the I_S table only shows explicitly created tables, those created with CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE. Users may be confused by this and think that it should show temporary tables that are created to process complex queries. (Is it possible to show such tables? It would be helpful.)

See http://forum.percona.com/index.php?t=rview&goto=8048&th=2132#msg_8048 for example.

It also shows internal temporary tables created by ALTER TABLE.
