26.3.2 Use of the Option --disable_abort_on_error

This option is very useful when starting to write a new test because the test will not abort if your script contains some failing statements or SQL syntax errors. By disabling the abort, you get to see more of the errors per test run and can fix more of them at a time.

But there are only rare situations where the final versions of a test should use "--disable_abort_on_error", either at all or during a sequence of several SQL statements.
