I'm compiling with BACKSQL_TRACE defined right now.

After further prodding I have discovered...

ejabberd (a jabber daemon) makes connections to ldap, which it keeps 
open indefinitely. It appears mysql's odbc connector will time out an 
idle mysql connection after 8 hours. Since this is the slave system it's 
entirely possible for it not touch mysql connections for at least 8 hours.

If we restart mysql some ldap queries fail on back-sql portion until we 
kill ejabberd (to close it's ldap connections).

I'll give you logs with tracing enabled asap, but this looks like a big 
clue as to what is happening.
