Comment 4 for bug 1074179

Hi John,

You know, I was under the same impression about --empty-replicate-table. It definitely sounds unintuitive, but digging further, the current behavior is needed to make --resume work, so changing it is not an option. So instead, I attached a second branch to this bug with a doc patch emphasizing how --empty-replicate-table works, and pointing out that if users want a truly empty --replicate table, they'll have to manually run a TRUNCATE TABLE.

Not the best solution, but it might save someone our current headache.
