Build Identifier:

CREATE TABLE g AS SELECT NULL AS j UNION ALL SELECT NULL AS j UNION ALL SELECT 'asdf' AS j WITH DATA;

worked fine with previous releases, fails now:
types char(4,0) and smallint(16,0) are not equal for column 'j'

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:

This should work fine as it did before.

IMHO this is due to the first UNION of NULLs creating a smallint type (sql_semantic.c, function supertype). Then, under strict coercion rules, strings cannot be UNIONed with this.
