Build is Oct2014 9d23c00aac8e

sql>select * from generate_series(1,128);
overflow in conversion of 128 to bte.

I expected that to work. The workaround is simple:

sql>select * from generate_series(cast(1 as int),128) limit 1;
+-------+
| value |
+=======+
| 1 |
+-------+

Since the workaround is so easy you could close this bug as invalid, but I'm probably not the only one who's going to be surprised.
