Replication runs as system user, so it doesn't need special privilege to create a table. I
think the temporary table is only belonged to the account who created, so I'm not
surprised if it cannot be replicated to a different server.
I did test on 5.1. It didn't replicated, but there was no error message, and the
replication is still running without interruption.
Why do you have to create temporary table?
