What steps will reproduce the problem?
Bug originally submitted to one of the MySQL driver project until we realized it was an
actual Go bug.
Original bug report: go-sql-driver/mysql#98

If possible, include a link to a program on play.golang.org.
1.  create a prepared statement
2.  query the statement in a loop
3.  while the queries are running, kill the DB connection

What is the expected output?
The driver should auto-reconnect like it does if instead of sending using prepared
statements I query the database directly.


What do you see instead?
The driver doesn't auto-reconnect.

Which compiler are you using (5g, 6g, 8g, gccgo)?
6g

Which operating system are you using?
OS X

Which version are you using?  (run 'go version')
go1.1.1 darwin/amd64

Please provide any additional information below.

It looks like the issue is that prepared statements are bound to a connection. In the
case where the connection is severed, the prepared statements don't get a new connection
and keep on failing.
This is a big deal since in real life most DB queries are or should be prepared to avoid
SQL injections and to improve performance. Furthermore many SQL high level libraries
like https://github.com/eaigner/jet rely on prepared statements.

I think this shouldn't be postponed to after Go 1.2.
Not working auto-reconnecting for prepared statements is a serious flaw IMO.
This is a thing the user should not have to care about and the database/sql package
makes this promise.

Sorry, would have been great if this had been done months ago when the issue was first
reported. We're well and truly locked down now, only fixes to very serious issues will
be accepted.

Hopefully it will make it into trunk soon after 1.2, it's indeed quite an annoying bug.

Comment 9:

The current code causes an especially critical bug in stmt.Exec:
http://code.google.com/p/go/source/browse/src/pkg/database/sql/sql.go#1252
The connection is put back to the connection pool even if resultFromStatement returned
an error.
This can lead to nasty panics if the driver does not completely distrust the
database/sql package and assumes that no connections marked by ErrBadConn are reused.
Here is one example case by better0332 where this happened:
go-sql-driver/mysql#142
I'm still of the opinion that this bug should be fixed in Go 1.2. From my point of view
this bug is very critical. My current advise would be not to use prepared statements
with the database/sql package unless the code is manually patched. And certainly not in
production.
