Don't swallow exceptions in transctional statements
The MySQL connection adapater swallows all StandardError exceptions, which includes Mysql::Error and Mysql2::Error. The comment in the exception clause claims errors thrown here indicate that transactions aren't supported by the server but that isn't necessarily true. It's possible the MySQL server has gone away and swallowing a failed commit may let the application return a successful response when the data has not been saved. Also, replication libraries like Galera require that the application handle exceptions thrown at BEGIN/COMMIT. I'm unable to determine what version of MySQL threw an exception for transactional statements. I tried as far back as 3.23.49 with InnoDB disabled but BEGIN & COMMIT statements do not throw an error. If there's a real case for this logic to continue, we could instead push this behavior into a configuration setting. The exception swallowing has been there since the beginning: db045db
