After reading http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/auto-reconnect.html I 
consider disabling auto-reconnect a good thing, even if you are annoyed of 
the log file entries :-)

Auto-reconnect is very dangerous while doing an AXFR transfer because it rolls 
back the transaction and reenables auto-commit mode. This may leave your zone 
in a state where the first half of the records are missing (when a slave 
updates it's zone).
