Indeed, I never verified that. But what's is the change master line in
your dump ?

You can correlate the position of the change master line with the query
in your binlog and see if any were run "before" that. So you'll have the
answer to your question.

Maybe the change of the binlog happens, the lock goes but some queries
may have went through between...

Anyway I think it's safer to use the position of the dump to know
exactly where the binlog should be played back :)
