Loading up the debugger (I'm so happy not to have gdb-win32 now :-P), I
get some interesting stuff. My test case is "SELECT '1'::seg &&
'2'::seg" which should return false, but returns true.
I also tried seg_overlap('1'::seg,'2'::seg) to make the path easier, but
same problem - still returns 't' when it should return'f'.
The SEG parameters going into seg_overlap() look perfectly correct, and
seg_overlap() actually returns 0. But this is somehow later turned into
't'. Any pointers for where to look for how that happens?
For example, calling seg_same('1'::seg,'2'::seg) works fine, so it's not
something in general with bool functions, or with the input functions.
In fact, those two functions looks very very similar to me.
