Build Identifier:

Created a SQL function that uses geospatial extension to make a geographic to Cartesian coordinates conversion.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

CREATE FUNCTION geographic_to_cartesian(lat FLOAT, lon FLOAT) RETURNS POINT /* convert geographic coordinates to Cartesian while creating a point */
DECLARE deg_to_rad FLOAT, lat_rad FLOAT, lon_rad FLOAT, aux1 FLOAT, aux2 FLOAT;
SET deg_to_rad = pi() / 180;
SET lat_rad = lat * deg_to_rad;
SET lon_rad = lon * deg_to_rad;
SET aux1 = sys.cos(lat_rad);
SET aux2 = 6371 * aux1;
RETURN sys.st_makepoint(aux2 * sys.cos(lon_rad), aux2 * sys.sin(lon_rad), 6371 * sys.sin(lat_rad));

CREATE TABLE test_table (lat FLOAT, lon FLOAT);

SELECT geographic_to_cartesian(lat, lon) AS calc_point FROM test_table;

Actual Results:

The client crashes.

Expected Results:

The query result, a table with a single column showing the results of the function call.

The client breaks after performing the select query, and the log message:

2016-07-06 13:54:35 ERR iotdb[15513]: mserver5: ../../gdk/gdk.h:2494: BBPcheck: Assertion `x > 0' failed.

I reproduced it on the default branch, and it happens whatever the table has rows on it or not.

It looks like the geom.MakePoint implementation is called but interpreted as if it is batgeom.MakePoint. This means that the return value is interpreted incorrectly as BAT id, and that causes the crash.

Should be fixed now.
