The mergetable optimizer creates the following sequence from the instruction A := sample.subuniform(b,n):

t1 := sample.subuniform(b1,n);
t2 := sample.subuniform(b2,n);
t3 := sample.subuniform(b3,n);
t4 := sample.subuniform(b4,n);
a := mat.pack(t1,t2,t3,t4);
a := sample.subuniform(a,n);

This is wrong:
sample.subuniform() returns a candidate list for its argument bat, so the last call to sample.subuniform() returns an index into the result of the mat.pack(). The result should be subset of the result of the mat.pack(). In other words, there is an algebra.projection() missing.
