This bug was reported by José Cavieres in the mailing list. I tried to simplify the query as much as possible, so it might not make any sense :)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

sql> create table foo (a int, b int);
sql> select 1 + 1 as bar, sum(b) from foo group by bar;

Actual Results:

A MAL plan is generated but during its execution the instruction group.subgroupdone is found to be undefined.

The generated MAL plan:

function user.s2_1(A0:sht,A1:sht):void;
X_6:sht := calc.+(X_4,X_5);
(X_7,r1_7,r2_7) := group.subgroupdone(X_6);
X_13:bat[:oid] := sql.tid(X_3,"sys","foo");
X_16:bat[:int] := sql.bind(X_3,"sys","foo","b",0);
(X_19,r1_19) := sql.bind(X_3,"sys","foo","b",2);
X_22:bat[:int] := sql.bind(X_3,"sys","foo","b",1);,X_19,r1_19,X_22);
X_26:bat[:hge] := aggr.subsum(X_25,X_7,r1_7,true,true);,nil:str);,nil:str);,nil:str);,nil:int);,nil:int);
end user.s2_1;
querylog.define("explain select 1 + 1 as bar, sum(b) from foo group by bar;","default_pipe")

This error is already triggered in sql_optimizer line 228.
It means that the code generation itself is likely incorrect.
