Maybe one determining factor here is that I am using a function to add the 
school record. The reason is that I need to the ID that was created when the 
school record was added, so I have an AddSchool() function.that adds the 
school record, then returns the LAST_INSERT_ID();  The term "deterministic" 
is always confusing to me.  From what I can read, a function can be 
considered "deterministic" if it always returns the same value for the same 
input. Well, if I AddSchool('ABC'), then do an AddSchool('ABC') again, it 
will not produce the same output.  The LAST_INSERT_ID() will be whatever ID 
is next assigned.  So, the function should be considered Not deterministic, 
I guess, right?  That could be my problem.  I've noticed that I've got the 
function set to Deterministic.  From another perspective, however, you could 
say that it always returns LAST_INSERT_ID(), which is a variable, but 
none-the less, that doesn't change...

I'm not using a temporary file, so I know that's not the issue.

I'm also using different versions.  My slave is version 
5.0.67-community-nt-log.  My master is version 5.0.17-nt-log.  USUALLY, 
versions are backwards compatible, so I would assume I'm OK in this 
instance, but maybe not?  I hesitate to upgrade, because of possible issues. 
This is a production server that stays pretty busy too, and finding a time 
to be down for a bit may be difficult.
