Dear fellow developers,

here's my promised detailed analysis of the impact of the checkins during
that last two weeks and the current state of MonetDB 4.3.16:

To which changes caused which harmless or harmful differences, and to update
the stable output according to the harmless differences, I did re-playing
the changes that happened during the last two week on a per day per
developer basis, i.e., in 6 steps: 2004-04-14_nielsnes, 2004-04-15_boncz,
2004-04-15_nielsnes, 2004-04-16_nielsnes, 2004-04-18_mlkersten,

YES, this means 6 times
	- compiling MonetDB from scratch,
	- running Mtest,
	- checking the output/differences,
	- running Mapprove where necessary
	- re-running Mtest, in case Mapprove was necessary
(well, it only "cost" me a few hours on early Sunday morning...).

As you saw from my checkins, most changes turned out to be "harmless", and I
updated the stable output as necessary (hoping, that the respective
developers did indeed intend these changes...).

"Only" the broken join turned out to be indeed "sad truth".
A respective bug report has been filed.

Well, that's all from me for now.

I'm off, again...
