kill query and prepared statements

Hi all,

I have reported this problem before, but I raise it again, since I still get this problem with 5.7.17

See attached code:

I want to interrupt a long running statement with CTRL-C by starting a new connect to make a KILL QUERY.

I am using the same technique as the mysql client code.

The difference here is that my code is using PREPARED STATEMENTS with mysql_stmt_prepare() etc.

Problem: After interrupting the first query with CTRL-C, the call to mysql_stmt_close() hangs...

Maybe I am missing some new connection or statement option...?!?

IMPORTANT: This problem appeared in a 5.7.x, same code is working fine with 5.6(.16) !!!!

Please can someone from MySQL C API team try to reproduce and confirm?
