Rails 4 - Long running sql queries are killed #9907

Rails 4, mysql2 gem (This problem not exists in rails 3.2)

If we run

ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute("LONG RUNNING SQL")

We will get

Mysql2::Error: Lost connection to MySQL server during query: ...

It occurs in migrations mostly when we are alerting big tables.

I make some investigation and I think the problem is in class Reaper
Method remove is called (by reap method) during query and we exception (Mysql2::Error: Lost connection to MySQL server during query)

If we add one of this options:

dead_connection_timeout: 10000000
reaping_frequency: 10000000

to database.yml it will solve problem but rails then will be not able to reconnect to database after connection lost.
