I have a segmentation fault when running an SQL query against a specific table.
I can execute queries like
"select count(*) from <TABLE>"
but the server crashes when I do
"select * from <TABLE> where businessdate = '2013-12-18' limit 100".

MonetDB version:
MonetDB Database Server Toolkit v1.1 (Feb2013-SP5)

The problem is that it tries to de-reference null pointer 'name'.
The pointer is calculated in BATLocation as  (b->T->heap.filename ? b->T->heap.filename: b->H->heap.filename).
The column in question has type real so as far as I understand there is no heap file for it.
I don't know if heap.filename should contain NULL or something else.
