Duplicated queries in the binlog for pt-table-checksum

I noticed that the queries in the binlog generated by pt-table-
checksum looked like it was duplicating work:

REPLACE INTO percona.checksums ( ... 'YYY' as cnt, 'XXX as crc )
UPDATE percona.checksums ( ... master_crc = 'XXX', master_cnt =
'YYY' ... )

Also in 'after_nibble', there's a comment that I'm not understanding:

# We're working on the master, so update the checksum's master_cnt
and master_crc.
$update_sth->execute( ... )

Now the $update_sth statement is run, which gets binlogged, which gets
replicated. Since there is no 'SET SQL_LOG_BIN=0' I'm guessing that
the update statement is run everywhere. So why the comment?

Am I missing something here?

The REPLACE and UPDATE actually touch different columns, so they're
not duplicates. The comment in after_nibble reflects the legacy of
the code a bit, and isn't the best comment, I'd say. Sorry for the

Check out the latest unreleased code -- it has better docs.
