Jul 2015-SP1 bugfix release

   Client Package
     * In the SQL formatter of mclient (the default) we now properly align
       East Asian wide characters.

   Bug Fixes
     * 3789: Query on large string table fails on HEAPextend
     * 3794: table function sys.rejects() and view sys.rejects() are
       listed are metadata objects but give an (incorrect) error when they
       are queried
     * 3797: COPY INTO with incorrect number columns
     * 3798: SELECT query with INTERSECT causes assertion failure
     * 3800: LIKE is broken for many patterns

       BATs
     * 3803: SQL query parser fails to parse valid SELECT query with a
       CASE .. END in it. It fails with parser error: identifier 'x'
       ambiguous
     * 3804: `monetdb status` command crashes under certain conditions
     * 3809: Inefficient plan is generated for queries with many (>= 24)
       joined tables which take a long time or an HEAPalloc error. I get
       Error: GDK reported error. HEAPalloc: Insufficie
     * 3810: Fix statistics gathering
     * 3811: NOT LIKE not working if the operand doesn't contains

       incorrect format
     * 3818: Crash when performing UNION/GROUP BY over tables with
       different columns
     * 3819: order of tables in FROM-clause has negative impact on
       generated plan (using crossproducts instead of joins)
     * 3820: mclient accepts table with repeated constraint which causes
       crash on insert
     * 3821: Unexpected error when using a number instead of a boolean
     * 3822: Yet another LIKE operator issue
     * 3823: JDBC Connection to a schema - setSchema() error
     * 3825: MonetDB not cleaning intermediate results which leads to
       filling up disk space and ultimately server crash
     * 3827: Certains comparisons between UUID produce a MAL error
     * 3828: Schema corruption after several ALTER TABLE statements and
       server restart
     * 3829: Certains simple WHERE clause cause MonetDB to segfault
       without explanation
     * 3830: Coalesce typing inconsistencies
     * 3833: NULL literals refused at many places
