Build crashes when no primaryKey on autoIncrement column #564

In reverse engineering a MySql database, I discovered that there are apparently several tables in which there is an integer ID column that is autoIncrement but is not a primaryKey:

    <column name="id" phpName="Id" type="INTEGER" autoIncrement="true" required="true"/>

This causes quite a nice crash during a build in src/Propel/Generator/Builder/Om/ObjectBuilder.php->addDoInsertBodyRaw() on line 4839:


...since the table has an autoincrementing key, but the 'primaryKey' $column is null. It would seem that there should be a check somewhere before it crashes, either as a post-generation check on the reverse engineering, or a build preflight of the schema.xml file, or an exception thrown at the point of failure.

Simply ensuring that an autoIncrement column is also a primryKey column is the quick fix, once I figured out what was going on:

    <column name="id" phpName="Id" type="INTEGER" primaryKey="true" autoIncrement="true" required="true"/>
