Build Identifier:

sql>trace select '12345' || 678;
| L2 |
| 1234 |
: 5678 :
1 tuple (3.652ms)
| usec | statement |
| 98 | X_3=0@0:void := querylog.define("trace select \'12345\' || 678;":str, "sequential_pipe":str, 9:int); |
| 167 | sql.resultSet(".L2":str, "L2":str, "char":str, 0:int, 0:int, 3:int, "12345678":str); |

I assume that integer 678 is cast to a (fixed size) string before concatenation.
However, sql.resultSet shows a size 0.
Notice also how the result is oddly formatted.

Reproducible: Always

From: @njnes

the general charachter types of the concat function turn the result in a
char(0), which is now handled by the output (result set) code using the same code as varchar(0)
