In short, this is what has been happening to mysqlhotcopy.

(Please correct me if I'm wrong. It's late and I'm tired.)

DBD::mysql changed the behavior of $dbh->tables(), causing mysqlhotcopy to break. This was kind of handled by the $hc_locks-patch in 56-mysqlhotcopy-invalid-dbtable.dpatch

Later mysqlhotcopy was fixed more properly by replacing $dbh->tables() with a direct ""SHOW TABLES FROM `db`".

Our problem is that we still apply 56-mysqlhotcopy-invalid-dbtable.dpatch, causing problem instead of fixing problems.

By the way, is a good read.
