Thanks, Ingo, there is indeed such interest!
As I wrote in the bug report, this may be caused by MTR2 stopping mysqld with
kill -9, which prevents tools like gcov, safemalloc, and valgrind from
operating correctly, as they need to do some processing at shutdown.
For a similar problem, see Bug#43418:
I already fixed Bug#43418 in the MariaDB 5.1 tree. If there is interest, I
would be willing to release the fixes to MySQL/Sun under the BSD-new license
(or maybe GPLv2 is in any case sufficient for mysql-test-run stuff?).
